Continent Winner - The Best Vineyard in Australasia 2023


Central Otago, New Zealand

Ethos: Granted a moment of custodianship, the primary interest of all who work and live at Rippon is to do justice to this remarkable piece of land.

Central Otago in New Zealand is an elemental land of exquisite light, air, water and earth. Waterfalls, glaciers and alpine valleys are the backdrops of this stunning vineyard that borders Lake Wanaka.

Rippon Estate produces a highly lauded range of Pinot Noir from this magnificent landscape and its biodynamically-farmed vineyards. Meanwhile, Rippon Hall, which hosts concerts, events and pop-up restaurants throughout the year, was born from the surrounding land. The walls are made from compacted earth, the supporting beams from locally-sourced timber and the boiler is fuelled by wood sourced sustainably from the farm. The perfect location for an evening of music and merrymaking beneath the southern stars.

Don’t miss: taking in the incredible natural landscape, the mountainside lakes, alpine valleys and waterfalls that offer a world of adventure.
