Win Tickets. We've got two tickets to giveaway to Tuesday's Great 8 (that's us and 7 of our mates) Hawke's Bay Wine Festival at the Wine Cave in Auckland. To win, simply comment below with the name of the mate you'd take with you and we'll draw them Monday. Go to it.
Great Eight...? Another opportunity to catch us #Auckland and even jump into a Masterclass with Rod...now there's a thought! Also there for this fab tasting will be our Hawke's Bay friends (and their wines) from Elephant Hill, Mission Estate Winery, Trinity Hill Wines, Vidal Estate Te Mata Estate and Babich Wines. Hold on, that's only 7...ahhh Paritua Winery. EIGHT. And they're all great!
The cutest petite notebooks now at our Cellar Door, adorned with one of our fave photos from The Dinner Party shoot with Heather Liddell. $8 for one, $20 for three. For all your scribbles, doodles, world domination timelines and shopping lists!
We're on the road. August brings with it the Hawke's Bay Wine Celebration...which funnily enough, is a celebration of Hawkes' Bay Wine. We hit the road and head to Auckland on 22 August, hotly followed by Wellington on 23 August. We'd love to see you there, and it's not just us, we're bringing 37 of our friends and over 220 wines with us. (not all from us you understand!)
Check out these two links for full details and tickets. Come and say 'hi' and see what we've been up to lately, we'll be bringing some goodies with us!
Live and in love! We're head over heals with our The Loom 2017 Chardonnay, so either pop out and visit our Cellar Door or jump on over to our website to purchase your little slice of TA history, our first Reserve Chardonnay under The Loom label. It's good kit. Not much of it (not kidding). And super delicious!
It's already garnered 5 Stars from Raymond Chan and 94 points from Wine Orbit, so Go to it Chardy lovers!
Closed today. Sorry peeps, due to illness we’re having to close today....we’ll actually, we’re not even opening. Back on deck tomorrow (Sunday) for sure. Rest up Sally and have a fab day off Loma! ... See MoreSee Less
Remember this wine? Our long-since sold out world-beating Quarter Acre 2015 Syrah which won top honours at last year's International Wine Competition taking out the trophy for top red wine of show/the world!!...well, we've donated a single bottle, along with 23 others from across our range, to The Cocktail Party auction this Friday.
Our auction is a silent one and you can bid on it now if you wish...it may be your only chance to pry a bottle of this Syrah out of Rod's hands in the next very long while....!!
The Loom. "Every day there are countless waves, but every day there will be one that is the very best. That's the loom. The best wave of the day. Guess the big challenge is that you never know if the wave you're about to catch is the loom, the one, or whether it's in fact going to be in the next set. So you've got to be out there a lot and the longer you're out there, the better chance you'll have of seeing it and riding it.
Growing grapes and making wine can be like that. The year is long, from the first leaves of spring until the fruit’s final day on the vine, deciding when to pick, that's our wave. Once we're on it, we're committed and it sets up everything that then happens in the winery, ending in what we are able to create for the bottle." RM.
