When passing through I generally make a point of visiting. The wine tasting is a good experience and informative. Make sure you try the Port - one of the main reasons I am a big fan of Torlesse!

This is one of the few wineries in Waipara where you are often served by the winemakers. They are passionate about what they do and work hard at it. Well worth a visit.
