W aipara Springs, founding winery and café of the Waipara Region, was established in 1981 and remains an entirely owned and operated Family Estate.
Waipara Springs is available for casual dining, group lunch bookings, hens’ parties, corporate functions, weddings and wine tastings.
We can create an experience to suit your requirements. We also have a Cellar Club which provides great benefits for members and invitations to special events.
Waipara Springs Winery and Cafe is located in the heart of the Waipara Valley. Planted in the early 1980’s the vineyard contains some of the oldest vines in the valley providing the entirely estate grown wines with a depth and intensity that only old vines can produce.
The vineyard of 26 hectares is planted with Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Noir and Merlot with the wines crafted in two differing styles, the fresh fruit driven wines under the Waipara Springs label and the structurally driven wines of the Premo label.
