Situated on the shores of Lake Wanaka, Rippon is home to some of the region's oldest vines and most distinct wines. Wine tastings and sales are available by appointment in the Cellar Door at the Rippon Hall. Come up and feel the difference.


A unique and distinct parcel of land, cared for by the Mills family for over 100 years. Biodynamic farming, no irrigation and some of Central Otago's oldest vines on their own roots all help to produce fruit and wines that are true to their place.

Six varieties have chosen Rippon as their home - Pinot Noir, Riesling, Gamay, Gewurztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc and Osteiner.
Reflecting characteristics of the terroir, these wines are precise, detailed, layered and foliated.

Rippon's Cellar Door is open by appointment for wine tastings and sales from 11am-5pm, daily. Private tastings are available and are required for groups larger than 6.
