Attraction details
Owner description: Waiau River Estate is situated just 13km south from the small alpine village of Hanmer Springs heading towards Christchurch. We are the only vineyard in this area; at 297m above sea level, we are among New Zealand's highest altitude vineyards. Our situation on the banks of the Waiau River and the micro climate it creates allows us to grows grapes where many people thought we would fail. Varieties grown are Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot Noir. We are open for tastings 10am to 5pm Daily.

we stopped into the winery on our way to Hamner Springs.. and we were very pleased!
We ordered the Dukkah and Cheese platter and the tastes were incredible! Overlooking the river and mountains, it was a magical afternoon!
The infused beers were very tasty (citrus) and the 2010 Riesling was lovely!
We will definitely be back!

We stopped at the Marble Point Winery for a quick wine tasting session and were very pleased. 5 wines were on offer, 4 whites and a pinot noir. If you purchase a bottle, the tasting is for free.

We decided to stop in here for a relaxed lunch on our holiday while staying in Hanmer. Turned out to be a great decision. The menu wasn't huge, but the food delivered. I had the lamb rack and it was simply outstanding. The wine was good too (Classic Riesling). The owners were friendly and down to earth. We had a really good time here. Highly recommended.
