The Terrace Edge monogram

Terrace Edge Wines

Terrace Edge is an organic family owned and operated vineyard and olive grove situated on the south bank of the Waipara River. Visitors come from near and far to sample the award-winning varietals and to stock up on Terrace Edge’s own olives and pressed olive oils. There’s plenty of seating both inside and out, so whether you choose to soak in the sunshine or nestle indoors, it’s certainly not hard – or a bad idea – to lose track of time at Terrace Edge. An elegant yet pared-back winery experience with views of the rolling North Canterbury hills and row upon row of grapevines, Terrace Edge is the kind of place where wine lovers and foodies alike can easily spend an entire afternoon. Stop by for a tasting, indulge in the wine and food experience, which includes thoughtfully prepared creations matched with five wines (bookings are essential) and make sure you stock up on some olive oil and wine before heading on your way.
