Great Lake Taupo Wineries, Vineyards and Wine Suppliers

The unique landscape of the Great Lake Taupo region is reflected in our wines; the region's high altitude, cool climate and free-draining volcanic soil all serve to create a distinctive bouquet. Most of the region’s vineyards are located near Turangi at the southern end of the lake.

There are also plenty of places where you can buy your wines. Taupo’s first boutique premium wine establishment was Scenic Cellars, which is now located at The Merchant of Taupo. They stock over 3,000 different wine labels and more than 100,000 bottles of rare and fine wines from all over the world. You can also purchase your wines from the many liquor stores within the region.
