Taupo Wine & Vineyards

Discover the charm of the Great Lake Taupo wines 


Wine enthusiasts should add Lake Taupo’s emerging vineyards to their ‘discovery’ list. The wines are a reflection of the area’s unique terroir; high altitude, cool climate and free-draining with deep pumice and gravel soils laid down by volcanic eruptions.

Head on down to Taupo’s first boutique premium wine establishment Scenic Cellars, which stocks over 3,000 different wine labels and over 100,000 bottles of rare and fine wines from all over the world.

The store was also the second retail premises in the southern hemisphere to install an Enomatic Tasting Machine in a retail store, allowing customers to self-taste domestic and international wines.
