Whitehaven 2016 Pinot Rose New Release

It's fair to say we are excited here at Whitehaven.  We have just released the Whitehaven Marlborough Pinot Rose 2016.  

The 2015 Pinot Rose sold out quickly and received a number of very positive accolades - including Pure Gold and Champion Rose Trophy from the 2015 Bragato Wine Awards.  We hope (and we're sure) that our 2016 Pinot Rose will receive the same level of high praise!  

Toast to Spring 1st September

We hope you will join us at our Toast to Spring Growers function on Thursday 1 September at the Vines Village for a catch-up. You will have a chance to visit our Cellar Door, and see a few changes that we've made recently.  We will have something light for you to nibble on, along with some wines to sample.  

When and where: Join us at the Vines Village on Thursday 1 September 2016 from 5.00pm until 7.30pm.  Please RSVP to Sioban ( if you would like to attend - and we hope you can!

We're dropping our winemaker Sam Smail

Yes.  You read that correctly.  

Our Winemaker Sam Smail and some of his industry peers will abseil from a dizzying height onto the stage at the new ASB Theatre, during the New Zealand Winegrowers Romeo Bragato conference to be held between 24-26 August this year.

This is a fundraiser for the Graeme Dingle Foundation Kids Can programme in Marlborough.  Through fundraising the foundation hopes to extend the  programme to around 1,700 Marlborough school children aged 5-12 years old.  Kids Can is a great initiative that teaches children the values of self-respect and respect for others.

Whitehaven has been supporting this worthy cause throughout the year, so we are thrilled to see Sam getting involved too.  

Please help Sam reach his fundraising goal of $1,000 by clicking on this link to go through to Sam's fundraising page. Whitehaven has kicked off Sam's effort by making a donation, and we'd encourage you to please do the same and 'give a little'.  All donations gratefully accepted thank you!
