Greystone Wines Sponsors Christchurch Art Gallery

Greystone Wines becomes exclusive wine sponsor of Christchurch Art Gallery

North Canterbury wine producer, Greystone Wines, has announced their new partnership with the Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetu, to become their exclusive wine sponsor.

Greystone Wines is a long supporter of the arts and believes in the power of art to transform a city.

“The gallery's reopening was a milestone in the revitalisation of the central city, and the Christchurch Art Gallery is acclaimed around the world for the quality of their exhibitions. We’re incredibly proud we can support them in such a way especially given that all our wines are grown in North Canterbury,” said Nik Mavromatis, Sales and Marketing Manager.

Jenny Harper, Christchurch Art Gallery Director said, “Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetu are delighted to partner with Greystone Wines, to help the Gallery become New Zealand’s best-loved and most-visited art gallery. Greystone Wines are celebrated nationally and internationally, and represent the very best of Canterbury. We are very happy to work with them going forward.”
