Happening's at Hunter's

What’s been happening over Spring around Hunter’s Wines

UK Wine Deliveries

Our UK Distributor, Jeroboams, have a new online ordering and delivery service. If you are looking to send your favourite Hunter’s wine to friends and family in the UK, check out the online shop at jeroboams.co.uk

New Labelling Machine

We are waiting with great anticipation for our new Labelling Machine to arrive from Italy. Delivery has been held up due to Covid- 19 freight restrictions, but the due date is now the end of August. We are one of the few Marlborough wineries bottling and labelling on site. The new equipment will drastically increase the speed in which we can label wine for market.

New Vineyard

We have recently signed the Lease option on a Rapaura Sauvignon Blanc vineyard. Rapaura Sauvignon Blanc is preferred by the Winemaking team as it exhibits the tropical fruit characters synonymous with Hunter’s Sauvignon Blanc. Winemaker James Macdonald and his team are excited about receiving the frst grapes from this vineyard in March 2021.

Burleigh Pie and Wine pairing

It is never a challenge fnding volunteers to participate in this challenge! What’s not to love about the comfort of eating pies whilst helping support the Marlborough Food Bank with entry proceeds being donated to this worthy cause. So, what better way to spend a sunny Friday afernoon than tasting pies and drinking wine? Our team is challenged against other wineries in Marlborough to pair one of the famous Burleigh Pies with one of our wines. We agreed that the Steak and Truffled Cheese Pie pairs best with our 2020 Gewurztraminer.
