Pask to Showcase its Wines at the 2014 NZ Art Show

Pask Winery to Showcase its Wines at the 2014 NZ Art Show

Leading Hawke’s Bay wine producer Pask Winery today announced that it has joined the NZ Art Show family of sponsors and supporters as a Gold Sponsor and exclusive wine provider for this year’s Show.
Pask wines will be served at the Show’s Gala Evening, attended by some 1,200 people on Thursday, 24 July prior to the three day Show opening to the public the following day.

The sponsorship will ensure that the Show’s exhibiting artists, sponsors and Friends enjoy some of the best Hawke’s Bay wine at the Gala event. Pask wines will also be provided as prizes to those attending the Show and voting for the artwork they believe is most deserving of winning the Show’s premier art award, the NZ Art Show’s $5,000 Signature Piece Art Award.

NZ Art Show Executive Director, Carla Russell said, “We are delighted to have the support of Pask Winery. Hawke’s Bay and Kate Radburnd, Pask’s Winemaker & Managing Director, produce premium wines consistently recognised around the world. Serving Pask wines at our Gala Evening will enhance our event, ensuring our guests will be spoilt for choice and quality on all fronts.”

Pask Winery’s Kate Radburnd says, “Wine and art have a long and natural association, and becoming involved with the NZ Art Show provides an additional opportunity for us to introduce our wine to a discerning and influential audience.”

This is the first time that Pask have been part of the NZ Art Show but the association is one that Carla Russell hopes will be ongoing.

Carla Russell said, “We feel that the stars are truly in alignment with this association. Pask’s Kate Radburnd is one of New Zealand's most acclaimed winemakers. She commands an international reputation for her extensive record of award winning wines, as well as her vision and contribution to the industry. Held in the highest regard by the wine industry, Kate is currently Chair of Judges at New Zealand's oldest wine competition, the New Zealand Royal Easter Show Wine Awards. Kate has also been instrumental in the development of the Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand program, which she is passionate about.”

This year’s NZ Art Show will be held July 25 – 27 in the TSB Bank Arena, Queens Wharf on the Wellington waterfront, with the Show’s opening Gala Evening being held on Thursday, 24 July.


“We are honoured to have Pask Winery choose to form an association with the NZ Art Show,” Carla Russell said.
