MANGAWHAI'S NO.1 NEWSPAPER

Something to go with the wine

 

IMG 0488-920There seems to be something special about music and vineyards and Mangawhai does it so well.

Boutique vineyard Te Whai Bay wines, nestled in the foothills of the Brynderwyns, opened their gates last Saturday to the public and over a hundred accepted the invitation.

Guests enjoyed the beaming sun sprawled lazily on the soft grassy knoll (freshened from recent rain), good wine, platters of crackers and cheese and a background of Spanish guitar music.

The tidy rows of vines, newly mown together with the freshness and symmetry of a vineyard seems to present a relaxing atmosphere that is hard to replicate in any other setting.

Though relatively new to the industry, Nicola Devereux and her partner John Burt have produced some promising results from just a very young vineyard and are keen to share their product with locals and visitors alike as well as a range of local preserves to savour.

IMG 0498-298Just three kilometres along King Rd, Te Whai is the first vineyard that enthusiasts will arrive at but is one of four within a short distance that comprise a compact wine trail that presents a wide range of award-winning beverages that are sure to please.

Te Whai vineyard will be open to enjoy both beverages and music, each Saturday afternoon until February 6.
