Tupari Tours

The Turnbull & Doonan families invite you to experience and enjoy an authentic Kiwi farm and vineyard operation. 

Tūpari is our business, our lifestyle and our home.

We feel honoured to hold the role of kaitiaki, or guardians of this place. Guided by the rhythm of the seasons and the land, we focus on working with produce that takes advantage of the natural times of bounty.  Grape vines and deer farming fit well with our dry summer and flush in autumn and spring. 

   We are working to preserve the land and develop it back to a place that nurtures our native flora and fauna, alongside the productive farm. Ensuring that the animals, our children and you... the ones enjoying our wines, will enjoy this place long into the future.

Tūpari is a labour of love, and it is our pleasure to share our wines and our land with you.

ravel in true farm style around our Kura Marama Vineyard and Aspen Farm where you will take in some breathtaking views of the Upper Awatere Valley, check out Boulder Flat and the riverbed as you taste grapes throughout the vineyard before visiting the deer farm, be fascinated by a sheep dog exhibition.
