Fodor's Review

One of the valley's oldest wineries, Waipara Springs offers lunch or just a wine tasting ($5). The café, in converted farm buildings, serves tasty dishes made with local foods such as olives, cheese, asparagus, and salmon. Try their antipasto platter for a sampling of each, with fresh homemade bread. These match well with the vineyard's top pinot noir, riesling, gewürztraminer, and chardonnays. They also do sauvignon blanc, pinot gris and rosé.
