Our Exploration Series events are all about exploring different wine regions around the world. This time, we're going to look at our own back doorstep in more detail, one of our favourite and under-rated New Zealand wine regions: Waipara in North Canterbury.

Waipara Valley is just 40 minutes north of Christchurch and is fast establishing itself as one of the premium wine producing regions of New Zealand, particularly in Pinot Noir and Riesling. According to Bob Campbell, the region is “one of the unsung heroes of the wine industry”. We at Wineseeker believe that Waipara is producing some of the best aromatic white wines in the country and their Pinot's rival nearby Otago wines.

We'll be tasting a selection of different wine styles from around the region including a replacement for Marlborough's Sav, white aromatics and of course different examples of Pinot Noir. The wines will be accompanied with tasting platters.
