A complete farm entity, Rippon is a unique and distinct parcel of land on the shores of Lake Wanaka, Central Otago which, for over one hundred years, has been cared for by successive generations of the Mills family.
Pioneers in the Central Otago wine industry, Rippon was among the very first in recent times to plant vines with the oldest blocks dating back to 1982. Farmed according to organic and biodynamic principles and with no fruit purchased from outside the farm, the primary interest of all who work and live at Rippon is to do justice to this remarkable piece of land.
Rippon is home to an on-site Cellar Door where guests can enjoy a tasting of a selection of Rippon's farm grown wines. The Rippon Hall also serves as a venue for weddings, conferences, pop-up dining events, concerts and smaller functions, looking out of the vines to Lake Wānaka and the mountains beyond
