Begin your Waipara wine trail tour with convenient pickup at your Christchurch hotel; settle in to your seat for the 40-minute drive to the up-and-coming wine producing region.

Visit a series of cellars and tasting rooms, which may include Waipara Springs, Torlesse Wines, Pegasus Bay, and Waipara Hills (wineries are subject to change without notice).

Enjoy tastings of top-class reds or whites at each and learn about the wine producing and grape-growing methods. Tastings at each winery are included, and feel free to indulge, knowing you have a safe ride home.
