Review of Waiau River Estate

Waiau River Estate

Attraction details
Owner description: Waiau River Estate is situated just 13km south from the small alpine village of Hanmer Springs heading towards Christchurch. We are the only vineyard in this area; at 297m above sea level, we are among New Zealand's highest altitude vineyards. Our situation on the banks of the Waiau River and the micro climate it creates allows us to grows grapes where many people thought we would fail. Varieties grown are Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot Noir. We are open for tastings 10am to 5pm Daily.

The Marble Point Winery was in the most beautiful setting overlooking the river. The wine is ever so nice on the taste buds and we indulged in quite a few bottles. The wine tasting was great and the staff were very helpful with their advice.
