Amisfield To Profile Wines At Michael Hill NZ Open

Amisfield Wine Company To Profile Wines At Michael Hill NZ Open

The Amisfield Wine Company will profile its distinctive award winning wines, including its celebrated Pinot Noir 2007, at the Michael Hill NZ Open at The Hills Golf Course in Queenstown on January 28-31.

As an official Michael Hill NZ Open Wine Sponsor, Amisfield will host visitors at its Main Street hospitality venue throughout the four day tournament.

General Manager Fleur Caulton says it is significant for Amisfield to be associated with a high calibre international event like the Michael Hill NZ Open.

“We are taking the opportunity for the third successive year to promote our wines to visitors, both from New Zealand and overseas, who attend this golf tournament. The Amisfield Bistro is also close by to The Hills and traditionally lunch and dinner bookings are strong for the Michael Hill NZ Open.”

The company’s flagship wine, the Amisfield Pinot Noir 2007, is expected to create a lot of interest.

“The vintage has won consecutive gold medals: Top 100 Blue Gold award at the 2009 Sydney International Wine Competition, a gold medal at the 2009 New Zealand International Wine Show and a gold medal at the Cathay Pacific Hong Kong International Wine and Spirit Competition, endorsing its outstanding qualities,” says Ms Caulton. “Our winemaker Claire Mulholland has created something very special with this particular wine.”

“The Michael Hill NZ Open is the ideal chance for us to strengthen our brand and we look forward to being part of the event as a significant Central Otago and New Zealand wine producer.”
