TAKAPUNA WINE CLUB | A NIGHT WITH RIPPON
In 1975, Rolfe Mills, the third generation of his family on the farm, started to plant a series of experimental rows of Vitis vinifera. In 1982 Rolfe and his wife Lois planted the first block of vines with the express interest of growing high quality wine and released their first commercial vintage in 1989. The land continues to be farmed by the Mills family, together with dedicated long-term staff. As winegrowers, the teams principal commitment is to the soil. Nurturing a healthy, responsive medium underfoot binds the vines and the people to their land. For over 30 years, through careful observation and selection the varieties and the individual vines that were proven to be most suited to the site were planted, parcel by parcel, on the farms most favorable slopes. The greater majority of Rippons vines today remain on their own roots. Join us with Rippons Nick Mills as we taste through these amazing wines!
