Fodor's Review

Kym and Ben Rayner are consummate winemakers, and Kym is one of the pioneers of Waipara winemaking. At Torlesse Wines they use grapes from several vineyards around Waipara and farther afield, and Riesling is their biggest seller. Sauvignon Blanc, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, and Rosé are also produced, as are the Omihi Road reserve wines and Old Reserve Port, made in the same barrels since 1992. While you're there you can also check out the local arts and crafts for sale.
