Where the magic happens!
A couple of years ago we moved into our new-to-us winery in Te Kauwhata, the Waikato. This historic 116-year-old winery was designed and built by the government in 1902 as New Zealand’s first viticulture research station and was originally headed by industry pioneer, viticulturist and legend Romeo Bragato. In 1908, six wines made by Bragato at the winery were sent to the Franco-British Exhibition in London. An incredible five of the six wines won gold medals. This was the first international competition to award gold medals to a New Zealand wine – so you could say the winery has been winning golds since 1908!
Rob’s also got his eye on the enormous copper still that came with the winery and dates back to WWII when it was used to make medicinal alcohol. “Who knows what we could make in that beast!” Suggestions on the back of a postcard please.
