While on a weekend away in NH, Beth Ann and Arié stumbled upon this great restaurant in Laconia that just happened to have Twelfth Night Sauvignon Blanc on their menu! Thanks Sheila at Circa Wines! Great food -our favorite were the poppers, the duck confit rolls and their absolutely amazing ‘how sweet it is’ sourdough pizza-, great restaurant and lovely owners – thanks to Ray and Leslie for a wonderful evening. Check out Tavern 27 if you are in the area.
Harvest is over and the 2015 vintage promises to be a very good one. Below is a message from our crew and a short video with faces and sounds of Harvest 2015.
Every day the sun must rise, and every day the vines keep growing. The fall, the winter, spring and summer they all go by in the blink of an eye and the vines keep going. The harvest comes the harvest goes. The wine comes, the wine goes. The faces of the harvest are the workers, those who put their hearts and their souls into the wine, and in every bottle you see an individual soul, made up of many little ones. The mountains, the streams, the rivers, the gorges; they come, they go, but their beauty never fades. It never fades because a little piece of the wonders of New Zealand is hidden in each bottle. But you won’t find it until you get to the bottom!
A few words from Max, inspired from one of his favorite pictures. Enjoy…
The sun may fade, but the beauty stays. The day is done, the night begins, yet the vines keep growing. The beauty is magic, the senses explode, but nothing can heal like the great wine of old. A bottle, a second, a case, perhaps a full cellar, and it is always good because never say never.
After a final push, the team stripped the vineyard of its final fruit and got ready for the now traditional end-of-harvest party. Thank you all for a great season!
Max just returned from Central Otago and gifted us with this wonderful photo album. Easy to fall in love with this part of the world. Enjoy…

As Harvest continues, Antony takes a few minutes to explain what happened during this season and why we expect great things from the 2015 vintage.
The 2015 Harvest is now under way! The crew started picking on March 28th and is about 40% done. Max, our resident photographer extraordinaire, is now with them and will be taking a lot of pictures. Have a look at our photo section in a few days for the 2015 Harvest photo album.
Good luck to all!
