Tiki Tour

New Zealand is a land like no other. New Zealand wine is an experience like no other. The special combination of soil, climate and water, innovative pioneering spirit and commitment to quality all come together to deliver pure, intense and diverse experiences. In every glass of New Zealand Wine is a world of pure discovery.

Sheep in VineyardNew Zealand produces less than 1% of the world’s wine, yet offers an impressive array of varieties and styles. Central to their success is New Zealand’s temperate, maritime climate, the unswerving passion of their wine producers and the highly distinctive nature of their wine styles.

Whatever your preferences, chances are there is a New Zealand wine to suit your palate.

All wines presented at this event are certified by Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand. All evening portions of these wine events will have a silent auction benefiting charity.

Sauvignon Blanc is, indeed, New Zealand’s most widely planted variety which accounts for around 85% of all wines exported. Be part of this year’s 7th annual Sauvignon Blanc Day on May 6 2016 as New Zealand will be leading the charge and holding events across the world to celebrate the variety that awoke the world– an online global social media wine tasting.

Restaurants, retailers and consumers – along with global wine brands – will be celebrating Sauvignon Blanc for the day and participating in the Twitter conversation by using the “hashtag” #SauvBlanc. If you live in Ontario or British Columbia– join in the celebration on Instagram for a chance to win a gift certificate to your local wine store. (Please see below for more details.)
