Vela’s first wines will be labeled with the name Twelfth Night. Why Twelfth Night? During Beth Ann, Arie and Max’s first trip to New Zealand, they were astounded by the beauty of the stars in the night sky. They made a trip up to the astronomical observatory on Mount John next to Lake Tekapo on the twelfth night of their trip and were blown away by the beauty of the sky. The following day they found the vineyard that they ultimately purchased. They vowed to give their future wine a name that would pay homage to the night sky and reflect the sense of adventure and exhilaration fitting of their exciting project into the world of New Zealand wine.
