The Crater Rim Ltd is a family-owned boutique winemaking company situated in the rolling hills of Waipara, in the South Island of New Zealand. We grow, make and market limited quantities of terroir-specific wines produced from our own two vineyards and contracted sites in the Canterbury sub-regions of Waipara, Omihi and Banks Peninsula and in Central Otago.
These sites have been carefully selected for their particular mix of varietal, topography, soil and microclimate – creating high quality, site-specific wines of individual character and drinkability. We manage our own vineyards and work closely with each grower to ensure that vines are cropped low and managed sustainably, guaranteeing the best quality fruit possible from each vineyard site. These are exceptional wines from exceptional regions.
