Fodor's Review

The huge, cathedral-like European castle rock-and-timber building at Waipara Hills, although less than 20 years old, looks somewhat medieval. The Waipara Hills Riesling, Pinot Gris, and Pinot Noir are all worth trying. The label uses grapes from Marlborough, Otago, and Waipara so there's a lot happening in a bottle. The café in the Cloisters, the high ceiling–medieval style section of the building, is open for lunch and afternoon coffee. There's a cellar door across the entrance hall for tastings.
