Canterbury Wines & Wineries

Canterbury’s wine-growing industry has come a long way from the humble beginnings when French settlers planted the first vines in Akaroa.

Since the pioneer days, Canterbury viticulture has matured and established itself around the two regions of Burnham and Waipara. More recent times have seen Kurow plantings produce vintages.

Typically, Canterbury whites have been in ascendance from Chardonnay, Reisling, Gewürztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc, and to a lesser extent Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc. Pinot Noir has also done well in Canterbury, in Waipara particularly.
