About Rippon

The stunningly beautiful Rippon Vineyard is situated on the shores of Lake Wanaka, with views across the lake to Ruby Island and the magnificent snow-capped peaks of the Buchannan Mountains.

Founded 1982 by the Mill’s family, it is often regarded as the most photographed vineyard in the world. Here, truly great wine is produced by one of the Central Otago viticulture pioneers. The sense of place is also mirrored in the deep care for the environment by the Mills family.

Rippon terroir

Lake Wanaka creates a unique environment. The temperance of this large thermal mass, coupled with the protective nature of Ruby Island further softens Rippon’s microclimate.

All Rippon wines are issued from a single vineyard; no fruit is bought in from outside the property. Rippon wines are issued from some of the oldest vines in the region. 80% of the vineyard is planted on its own roots and is not irrigated. Rippon Pinot Noirs spend two winters (15-18 months, depending on vine age and vintage) in barrel and are run into bottle without filtering or fining. Rippon Pinot Noirs, Rieslings & Gewürztraminer are cellared in bottle for one year before being released to the market.
