New Zealand incentive and conference organisers, corporate agents and media were treated to some behind the scenes Australian winery action, some blind tastings and even a drop of 100-year-old port at the event, at a lavish function in Auckland recently. There was also bottle of fine red to take home.
Business Events Australia in partnership with Ultimate Winery Experiences of Australia hosted the function at White Studios in Auckland, highlighting five specific wineries.
South Australian winery d’Arenberg shared details of its newest venue, the architect-designed d’Arenberg Cube, set to open in late 2017. With a vintage being laid down every year since 1878, Seppeltsfield Wines, also from South Australia, gave guests an exclusive tasting of their 1917 port. Also from South Australia, The Lane Vineyard showcased their ‘blend your own’ experience whilst Tasmanian winery Moorilla, situated at the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA), demonstrated the relationship between art with wine. The Mornington Peninsula's Montalto Vineyard and Olive Grove offered guests a glimpse into their ‘Estate to Plate’ experience, a guided exploration of the property’s two acres of kitchen gardens, olive groves and extensive sculpture collection.
