Rotorua, NZ

Based in New Zealand’s tourism centre, Rotorua, Volcanic Hills Winery make exceptional New Zealand wine, choosing grapes from the country’s best wine growing regions.

Our focus lies in crafting your experience of wine, making wines to be enjoyed without confusing jargon.

Without limiting to a single region, we do what New Zealand does best, with each variety exhibiting characteristics typical of its respective viticultural region.



Our boutique winery is based at the foot of Mount Ngongotaha in Rotorua, the volcanic centre of New Zealand’s North Island, and a hub of tourism.

The winery sits at the bottom of the Skyline Rotorua, and our Tasting Room is a scenic gondola ride up the mountain, with stunning panoramic views across the region.

There are no commercially grown grapes in Rotorua, so we select our grapes from the best wine growing regions in New Zealand and bring them to Rotorua to make our wine. Without restricting to the loyalty of one region, we can choose the best each region has to offer.


We’re on a mission to inspire the world to drink better wine. The main reason we make wine is for people to enjoy it!

We promise not to bamboozle you with wine talk, but we will help you learn which wines you like and why. As active members of Sustainable Winegrowing, we strive to be more sustainable in all of our winemaking and distribution practices.


We do what New Zealand does best. Our wines represent the exceptional quality of New Zealand’s viticultural regions and exhibit classic characteristics of these famous wine regions.

Larissa has a background in accounting and property finance, and keeps the Volcanic Hills ‘ship’ on course. She’s based in both, the winery and tasting room and is usually on hand to try out any new vintage before it hits the shelves.
