Set against a backdrop of Lake Wanaka and the Southern Alps, we invite you to the Mills family farm to share in our history, community, story and wines.

Our Cellar Door is taking a few more moments of pause and reflection whilst the tail of Delta wraps itself up.  We will update this page as and when we have more details on re-opening dates, times and procedures.

Whilst our Cellar Door may be closed, our Cellar remains open for wine orders and deliveries.  Have a look at our webshop for ideas and options on how to make this time more vinously delightful.

During Level 2 and above, access from the lakefront walking track is prohibited.

Large group (more than six people) and private tastings can be arranged and accommodated on request.  Please contact our team for more information:


Our energy is focused on Rippon, the place, and the wines it produces.  We endeavour to keep this focus true and undiluted so do not have a restaurant in regular operation, nor do we offer food through our Cellar Door.

The Chef’s Table pop-up restaurant is back to The Rippon Hall this winter.  Check out their Facebook page or ring them on 0212060469 for more information.

Other than licensed caterers for specific events, outside food is not allowed anywhere on the farm.
