Rolfe and Lois Mills pioneered grape growing in Central Otago and their vineyard must have one of the loveliest outlooks of any vineyard in the world. Make sure you take your camera because you will want a lasting impression of their leafy, green vines cascading down the hillside to meet the bright blue waters of Lake Wanaka, with the jagged mountains beyond. They have free wine tasting here too. It’s hard to play favorites with wineries because they all have good points and dramatic locations, but Rippon must surely have the most picturesque views of any winery in the country. Make sure you take a camera to a wine tasting.
