Exceptional boutique Cherry Wine, proudly grown and produced in Central Otago, New Zealand.

• ORCHARD EST. 1995 •

Ripponvale fuses tradition and innovation to celebrate the bounty of this historic region with two varietals of Cherry Wine.
Lapins mixes fresh cherry and spice aromas with elegant floral notes and leaves red cherry and plum fruit flavours lingering on the palate. It is best served chilled or on ice.
Dry-style Sweetheart combines black cherry aromas with hints of vanilla, coconut, tropical fruit and peach. We recommend decanting and aerating this wine before drinking, to maximise its flavourful notes.
Both varietals are produced in partnership with award-winning New Zealand winemakers, Vinpro. From the initial harvest, to ageing and bottling, every element of Ripponvale Cherry Wine is crafted in the stunning, mountainous land of Central Otago.

Pioneers of Cherry Wine in Central Otago.

The distinctive terroir of Central Otago produces some of the world’s most coveted wines. For over two decades, the fertile soil, extreme climate and rugged terrain that create the region’s unique growing conditions have been embraced by the family orchard to grow premium cherries.
The orchard is primely located 230 metres above sea level, at the base of Mount Pisa. The family-run orchard’s rich earth gathers its pristine water from the Wakatipu Basin’s surrounding snow-capped mountains, which flow down the Kawarau River to Lake Dunstan. The world-class cherries are harvested by hand and aged to produce Ripponvale Cherry Wine.
