Waiheke Island produces some of this country’s finest, rarest and most prestigious wines, from small and generally steep-site vineyards. The Bordeaux-varietal wines excel, along with Syrah, Chardonnay and Viognier. But there are many other successful varieties and styles. Over the last decade or so, the wines from Waiheke have become more accessible, as volumes have slowly grown, and distribution increased. The wines, once seen as expensive, are becoming more affordable as well.

The Waiheke Island of Wine Expo will showcase over 90 boutique wines from 16 different producers: Awaroa, Batch, Cable Bay, Frenchmans Hill Estate, Goldie Estate, Kennedy Point, Man ’O War, Miro, Mudbrick, Obsidian, Passage Rock, Peacock Sky, Poderi Crisci, Postage Stamp, Te Motu, and Woodside Hill The winemakers and proprietors will be on hand to discuss their wines, their vineyards and winemaking.

The Trade and Media session runs from 2.30 pm – 5.00 pm, and registrations must be made with Jenny Holmes of the Waiheke Winegrowers Association.
