Wine
 

North Canterbury is just 40 minutes north of Christchurch and is fast establishing itself as one of the premium wine producing regions of New Zealand, particularly in Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling.  According to Bob Campbell, the region is ”one of the unsung heroes of the wine industry”.

The region has 2 main sub-regions, Waipara Valley & Waikari. 
There are also a few vineyards 20 minutes north of the Waipara Valley close to Cheviot.
