Wellingtonians raving over Bay boutique wines

Seven boutique Hawke’s Bay wineries took over the Khandallah town hall at the weekend and wowed Wellingtonians with their wine fare.

For the second year, members of the Hawke’s Bay Boutique Winemakers’ Group set up at the newly renovated hall and entertained around 200 wine enthusiasts keen to sample wines that were mostly unknown to them.

“People really appreciated meeting the winemakers and chatting about the past vintage,” says Roland Norman from Tukipo River Estate pictured. “For us it was a chance to add to our databases and promote Hawke’s Bay wine and the region as a must-visit destination.”

Wineries attending the Wellington Wine Fair were Lime Rock, Salvare, Unison, Tukipo River Estate, Ash Ridge, Beach House, and Hawkes Ridge.

Sunday’s event was part of the Boutique group’s annual Boutique Wine Fair series, which is set to begin in Hawke’s Bay again in October with monthly happenings at each of the member wineries.

The group is limited to wineries producing less than 8000 cases and involves 15 of the region's smaller wineries.
