Although Waiheke Island benefits from proximity to Auckland City, the wines from the island are not experienced as often as they could be, partly due to their small artisanal production, accessibility and sometimes cost. The Waiheke Island winegrowers will be showing their latest and current releases at their annual promotional event on Monday 10 October at the Sofitel Auckland Viaduct Harbour. It’s a wonderful opportunity of tasting wine from some of the rarer producers in the country, as well as meeting the owners and winemakers.

There will be 18 producers exhibiting their wines, including for the first time, Awaroa and Tantalus vineyards. In total, there will be close to 100 wines available for tasting. The exhibitors are: Awaroa, Batch, Cable Bay, Frenchmans Hill Estate, Goldie Wines, The Hay Paddock, Jurassic Ridge, Man ’O War, Mudbrick, Obsidan, Passage Rock, Peacock Sky, Poderi Crisci, SOHO, Tantalus, Te Motu, Te Whau and Woodside Hill.

A session for Trade and Media will be held from 1.00 pm to 3.00 pm. Please contact Jenny Holmes regarding attendance.
