Loopline Vineyard

Wairarapa

Loopline Logo

The first grapes on the Opaki plains were planted by Frank Parker in 1990. He planted an acre of Riesling and produced his first vintage in his Loopline Winery in 1993 in what was a converted calf rearing shed.

Ian & Jenny McGovern coming from a hill country farming background planted their first vineyard in 1995. Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Riesling & Merlot made up these first plantings on the 6 acre block. Loopline Winery started buying these grapes in 1999.

In 2002 we brought the Winery and another 7 acres bordering the Parkers and planted more Pinot Noir, Chardonnay & Sauvignon Blanc.

Loopline, named after the road it is situated on, is the most northern Wairarapa Winery. The Opaki area now has a number of vineyards and one other winery.

Its stony free draining soils have produced numerous award winning wines.
