Wairarapa, Provence

Maori for 'glistening waters’, the Wairarapa is located in the south-east corner of New Zealand's North Island, about an hour away from Wellington. Amongst the small, quaint towns and rolling fields of livestock, you'll find some of New Zealand's finest wines.

The small community of boutique winemakers in the region work hard to preserve the unique terroir of the region. Wairarapa offers hot summers, cool nights, and long, dry autumns that are perfect for ripening. The strong winds and harsh, semi-maritime climate leads to low yields of healthy, small grapes with very thick skins - these grapes are treated with care to make some outstanding wine.
Provence wine are from the region of Provence in southeast France. This region has a classic Mediterranean climate. Mild winters are followed by very warm summers with little rainfall. The main grape variety is Mourvèdre, which is the primary component in many Red wines and Rosés. The Côtes de Provence is the largest Appellation d’origine controlée of the region. The Bandol region near Toulon is internationally renowned for its Rosés.
