We are delighted to welcome Hunter’s Winemaker James Macdonald back to DWS. Taking after his father, Peter & his aunt, Jane Hunter, he is committed to the worldwide success of Hunter’s Wines.
Marlborough is New Zealand’s largest and best-known wine region with a reputation for producing some of the world’s finest Sauvignon Blanc. This huge potential was something that was recognised back in 1983 by Jane Hunter and her late husband Ernie when they founded their winery in the picturesque Wairau Valley.
Hunter’s Wines have won more than 100 gold medals at national and international wine competitions. With a reputation for consistently producing the highest quality wines year after year, Hunter’s was one of the first wineries to put Marlborough firmly on the New Zealand wine map.
Join James for a tasting of the stunning wines from Hunter’s award winning range, followed by a buffet supper.
Join us in October when Luis Marculeta will be comparing & contrasting the wines from the regions of Rioja & Navarra. Born in Pamplona Luis travels around the world extolling the virtues of this viticultural paradise.
Both these areas produce a wide variety of trailblazing & traditional wines.
