For our weekly wine tasting this day we will be featuring wines from Huia Winery out of New Zealand! Popular for their Sauvignon Blanc, this New Zealand winery is also certified Organic!
Owned by Claire and Mike Allen:
Claire and Mike arrived in Marlborough in 1990 and officially started Huia Vineyards in 1996.
Those early years were spent gaining valuable experience in wineries in Marlborough. Mike at Cloudy Bay and Vavasour whilst Claire was at Corbans and Lawson's Dry Hills. They also both worked and made wine in Champagne at Veuve Cliquot and Taittinger respectively.
This diverse, hands-on experience gave them a great grounding in making bright New World wines, but also integrated an ap...preciation of the sense of land, heritage and tradition from the Old World. When they purchased the wonderful Home block in Rapaura, it took several years to get it cleared, build the house and get the first vines planted. At the same time two gorgeous daughters arrived - Tui and Sophie - and they have played a full part in the continuing journey of Huia Vineyards...
Our lineup includes:
Huia Estate Sauvignon Blanc
Huia Blanc de Blanc Sparkling
Hunky Dory Pinot Noir
Hunky Dory "The Tangle" White Blend
