This week we will be hosting a series of tastings in ALL of our stores with Winemaker Anna Flowerday from the AMAZING Te Whare Ra (TWR) vineyard in New Zealand.
Together with her husband Jason, this young couple farm every square inch of their fantastic vineyard by hand. The wines are small production often just a few hundred cases. They have become absolute Staff and Customer favorites here at K&L and they have quite the cult following among those who have tasted these delicious wines. Anna is super energetic and passionate about her wines and it is a pleasure to taste with her in the house. The tasting is just $5 and will be one of the best value tastings you ever attend!

For those of you that have not seen any of TWR’s wines before here is the scoop: Te Whare Ra is a small organic certified and Biodynamic practicing estate in Marlborough’s Wairau Valley. The owners / winemakers Jason and Anna bought a section of old vines (planted in 1979) in 2003. After converting the estate over to their strict viticultural practices they have been focusing their efforts on making wines with a powerful sense of place, excellent textural presence and wonderful elegant poise. We are incredibly lucky to be working with these folks and I really hope people will come and try out their remarkable range of wines. They have all become true staff favorites at K&L and when you taste the wines you will know why!
