"The most beautiful winery in New Zealand 丨 Wanaka hides a world’s top vineyard in the mountains and lakes. In the past few years of living in New Zealand, weekend leisure activities besides hiking and watching the scenery, is to find a winery and drink a few glasses in the vineyard. Drunk and drunk, leisure and taste. Speaking of it, New Zealand's wine history is not long, less than 200 years, but there are as many wineries in the top ten producing regions of the North and South islands. This is because New Zealand is located between 40°-60°south latitude, and the central mountains are on both sides of the ocean, and most of the climate is suitable for growing grapes. What I want to share with you today is Rippon Winery in Otago, the southernmost region of New Zealand's South Island. Address: 246 Mt Aspiring Rd, Wanaka 9343, can be reached by car. Opening hours: summer (December to April) 11:00-17:00, winter (May to November) 12:00-17:00 closed on Christmas, Good Friday and Easter, closed in June, Unless you make an appointment in advance, the price: Rippon Winery voluntarily pays for wine tasting, not forcibly. The purchase price ranges from $20-$105. The world's top vineyards In the latest "2019 World's Best Vineyards" list, Rippon Winery ranked 8th, successfully ranking among the world's top vineyards. A hundred-year-old winery Rippon Winery has a history of one hundred years and is run by the Mills family. The Pinot Noir produced by it is very popular throughout New Zealand. Rippon Winery, the most photographed winery in New Zealand, is the most photographed winery in New Zealand. The winery is built on high ground in an excellent location, where you can taste the wine while overlooking Lake Wanaka and the spectacular vineyards. I have to say that the scenery here is really beautiful. The sunshine of Central Otago falls in the vineyards, and the breeze of Lake Wanaka hits. Breathing this pure air in the vineyards, the whole body and mind are stretched... Enjoying the beautiful scenery, wine tasting is of course indispensable . We have tasted five kinds of wine produced by Rippon. How do you say? No matter how publicized the winery is, I think it is not satisfactory. Sauvignon Blanc is considered a general, but the taste is not rich and sophisticated compared to other famous wineries in New Zealand; gamay is my first taste, and it feels slightly astringent; the taste of Pinot Noir is sorry for the reputation of the Central Otago region; Riesling The sweetness is not enough, it is too sour; the grape variety in the last glass is not familiar, and the taste can only be considered passing. After tasting the wine, I posted it to Moments and recorded my feelings at that time. A friend commented that "running marathons, cross-country races, skiing, fishing, wine tasting, travel, air tickets and hotel mileage points, I feel that you are all proficient." In fact, I just "understand a little bit of everything", and life needs to be fun. Maybe your mind can't give you a deep understanding of some aspects of your life, but it can make people go as broad as possible."
