Highfield Winery

The imposing Tuscan-style tower of Highfield literally sits above the neighbouring vineyards, like a sentinel keeping watch over the Wairau Valley. Take the opportunity to climb to the top – you will feel like a character from a fairy tale as you gaze out the turreted windows over the surrounding valley. The cellar door offers a full range for tasting and during the summer months you can take your wine out onto the terrace to enjoy with an antipasto platter.

Things To Know
There is a close link between Highfield and Champagne Drappier – the French Champagne house played a pivotal role in the production of Highfield’s Elstree Cuvee Brut. The teamwork was obviously successful.

Our Picks
Definitely try the Elstree Cuvée Brut and don’t miss out on the sauvignon blanc.
