Fodor's Review

Lying spectacularly by the shores of Lake Wanaka, Rippon is one of the most photographed vineyards in the country. The vineyard's portfolio includes riesling, gewürztraminer, chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, and fine pinot noir. Every other year, it's the venue for the Rippon Open Air Festival, one of the country's most popular music festivals. Head west from Wanaka along the lake on Mt. Aspiring Road for 4 km (2½ mi).
