Waipara Springs was established in 1989 as the founding winery of the Waipara Region. Today, it is in its third generation of family management. Their 36-year-old Chardonnay vines are ungrafted – unique in this region. Notably, Waipara’s founder Bruce Moore undertook the first plantings of Pinot Noir in the region in partnership with Lincoln University. This was a hugely successful experiment and has led to Waipara Valley gaining international recognition as a leading region for Pinot Noir production. The region’s cool climate enables grapes to develop and retain their vibrant flavour thanks to warm days and cool nights.
