The Studio and Homestead are set amongst spacious lawns, mature gardens and trees. Waipara River Estate produces award winning hand crafted boutique wines from the first planted vines by John McCaskey in 1981. Altogether the ideal place to escape crowds and stay a while. Being an hour out of Christchurch city you can enjoy the peace where the only sound is often the birds singing, appreciate the stars of the night sky without light pollution, walk barefoot on the lawn, drink the water sourced from 155m under the ground on the property, pick fruit from the trees in season.
