Down to Earth Rippon Experience

Come join us at Rippon in Wanaka for a sub-regional terroir experience. Learn how the specific geology and micro-climate of our farm help to create the unique textures and mouth-feel intrinsic to Rippon wines.

We will begin with a walking tour of the farm; including the compost cake and cow paddocks (the basics of biodynamics), Tinker’s Field (the original vines) and the winery. A wine tasting will be incorporated into the tour, periodically tasting different varieties as they are encountered throughout the vineyard.

The Rippon experience will conclude with cheese and cured meat platters on the Terrace of the Rippon Hall. Enjoy a glass of wine whilst overlooking the magnificent beauty of Lake Wanaka as she nudges gently against the strikingly surreal backdrop of the Southern Alps.

Tours are run subject to bookings. Two person minimum, 10 person maximum per tour.

N.B. If other vineyards in the region have been visited prior to arriving at Rippon, please ensure to bring an extra, clean pair of shoes to change into upon arrival. Our vines are primarily on their own roots and are thereby incredibly vulnerable to Phylloxera, which has been known to hitchhike on people’s shoes.
