The first grapes on the Opaki plains were planted by Frank Parker in 1990. He planted an acre of Riesling and produced his first vintage in his Loopline Winery in 1993 in what was a converted calf rearing shed. Ian and Jenny McGovern coming from a hill country farming background, planted their first vineyard in 1995. Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Riesling and Merlot made up these first plantings on the six acre block, known as the School block.

Two blocks make up the Loopline Vineyard. The seven acre Home block is planted in more Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Its stony free draining soils have produced numerous award winning wines.
