Taupo wineries & craft breweries

Taupo hasn’t missed out on the rise of the craft beer brewing movement and is home to several craft beer breweries, and boutique vineyards in the beautiful southern bays near Turangi. 

The high altitude, cool climate and free-draining volcanic soil of the central plateau all serve to create a distinctive terroir for the local wines. 

Sample local twists on traditional favourites at Taupo bars and restaurants or pick a bottle up at one of the boutique merchants throughout town.
