Rippon Vineyards

A complete farm entity, Rippon is a unique and distinct parcel of land on the shore of Lake Wanaka which, for over a hundred years, has been cared for by successive generations of the Mills family. It is Wanaka’s oldest vineyard and the Mills family chose well as the temperate climate helps with consistency. They also secured one of the most scene vineyards in New Zealand. 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. Biodynamic farming and no irrigation help the vine drive energy into its seed and issue raw material that is capable of fostering wines that are true to their place. Rippon's outstanding wines include their Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir.
