Wild ferment – Pinot Noir.
We’re delighted to say that most of our wineries, vineyards and restaurants have escaped major damage as a result of the Kaikoura earthquake.
Our thoughts are with those most-affected, particularly our fellow winefolk in Marlborough.
The following businesses are open:
- Black Estate Restaurant and cellar door
- Pegasus Bay Restaurant and cellar door
- Waipara Hills Café and cellar door
- Waipara Springs Café and cellar door
- Greystone & Muddy Water cellar door – Pop up Cafe open this weekend!
- Terrace Edge cellar door
- Torlesse cellar door
Marble Point Winery (near Hanmer Springs) will open for Cellar Door sales tomorrow (Thursday) – its restaurant will remain closed.
Mt Beautiful Tasting Room in Cheviot is undamaged but road closures are making it difficult to get to so it remains closed at this point in time.
Thank you so much for your support – our whole community has been overwhelmed with support from around the world which is really humbling at times like this.
Hear Nik Mavromatis of Greystone & Muddy Water and Angela Clifford & Lynette Hudson from Tongue in Groove talking about the harvest so far.
