One example is “The Specialist Winegrowers of New Zealand Ltd. They are an independent marketing alliance representing rare and exceptional wines from a small group of artisan producers. The alliance offers a single point of contact for sourcing some of New Zealand’s finest limited release boutique wine.”

Members of this group include:

  • Chris Canning / The Hay Paddock
  • Daniel Le Brun / No 1 Family Estate
  • Nick Nobilo / Vinoptima
  • Steve Farquharson / Wooing Tree

Willowridge Wanakafest Food and Wine Fest

August 26, 2010

A combined effort from 5 Wanaka vineyards and several of Wanaka’s top restaurants has created a food and wine fest to be held in conjunction with this years Willowridge Wanakafest.

For the first time, this is a solely Wanaka event. Only grapes grown in the Wanaka area and food prepared by local chefs will be involved. People will have the opportunity to head to Pembroke Park and sample some of our town’s top wines and foods, while listening to some relaxing music and socialising with friends.

The event has been largely driven by the Wanakafest community trust with help from Mount Maude wines and Rippon Vineyard.
