Celebrating the start of winter with Lindauer - NZ’s favourite bubbly
What better way to celebrate the arrival of winter snow falling on New Zealand’s ski fields, than with Lindauer Special Reserve Blanc de Blancs, meaning white of whites.
“The award-winning Lindauer Special Reserve Blanc de Blancs is unquestionably elegant as it is made purely from Chardonnay grapes grown in our premium Gisborne vineyards and is crafted using the best champagne-making techniques. It is revered for its citrus freshness, approachable style and outstanding quality,” says winemaker Steve Voysey.
And what better place to enjoy a glass of Lindauer than at the up and coming Queenstown Winter Festival, where the Lindauer Powder Room will offer ladies the chance to experience a little indulgence during the festival compliments of Lindauer. Ladies will enjoy a glass of Lindauer Special Reserve whilst being pampered by the talented make-up artists from Smashbox Cosmetics. The Lindauer Powder Room will be located by the Kawarau Falls Station Pavilion on Ballarat Street from 1 to 5 July.
Lindauer Brand Manager, Mia Hansson, comments “The Lindauer Powder Room is a great opportunity to engage our target consumers in a premium setting.”
“Lindauer, New Zealand’s favourite and most trusted bubbly, is synonymous with celebration and festivity and what better place to position Lindauer, than against the beautiful, picture-perfect backdrop of Queenstown”, says Mia.
The annual Queenstown Winter Festival is known as the southern hemisphere’s ultimate winter party and this year’s programme is outstanding with organisers certain that everyone will undoubtedly enjoy the festivities taking place from 26 June to 6 July.
Lindauer is a Platinum sponsor of this year’s festival of which a key highlight event will be the Lindauer Ball - Puttin' on the Ritz theme on Friday 4th July, where guests will step back in time to the dashing 1920's as the Millennium ballroom is transformed into a sparkling Lindauer extravaganza of yesteryear. MC Frankie Stevens will entertain festival glitterati and Kiwi vocal legend Jackie Clark teams up with fellow icons Tina Cross, Suzanne Lynch and Taisha as The Lady Killers, to form the ultimate party band for the ultimate party.
Celebrate the start of winter with Lindauer - NZ’s favourite bubbly, available from liquor stores and grocery outlets throughout New Zealand.
