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 open by appointment only Wednesday – Sunday from 1pm-5pm.

Tastings will be small and personal, only four guests per tasting session.  Each session will last approximately 30 minutes and include a sample of 4-6 of our current vintage wines.  Our tastings sessions remain free of charge.

Larger group and private tastings can be arranged and accommodated on request.  Please contact Leslie for more information:

Whilst the Rippon Hall is occasionally a venue for pop-up restaurants, we do not have a restaurant in regular operation, nor do we serve food through the Cellar Door.  Instead, our energy is focused on Rippon, the place, and the wines it produces.  We endeavour to keep this focus true and undiluted.

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