About Harris Wine & Food
The Harris family has farmed the Waipara valley for five generations. In 2003 the Harris Estate Vineyard was established taking advantage of the fine Waipara lime stone soils. Over the last decade it has evolved into a unique Mediterranean style environment. Alongside the European style vineyard are olive groves and a truffiere. This is situated in the beautiful Waipara wine and olive region.

Greening of Waipara
In recognition of the importance of insects to the process of creating a self-sustaining environment thereby minimizing the use of harmful sprays, Harris Estate is committed to the Greening of Waipara project. On the estate we have significant planting of local indigenous trees, shrubs and rare grasses. And our staff have been keen supporters of the wider community project.
