Fodor's Review

Kym Rayner is a consummate winemaker, and one of the modern-day pioneers of Waipara winemaking. At Torlesse Wines he uses grapes from several vineyards around Waipara and further afield, and riesling is their biggest seller. Sauvignon blanc, gewürztraminer, chardonnay, pinot gris, and pinot noir are also produced, as are the Omihi Road reserve wines, Old Reserve Port and a black-currant-based liqueur. While you're there you can also check out the local arts and crafts for sale.
