HUNKY DORY TASTING MAY 12

HUNKY DORY TASTING MAY 12

We are excited to have a Free Wine Tasting featuring Hunky Dory Wines on May 12th, 6:30pm – 8pm at Taylor’s Wine Shop! Here is a little bit about the folks over at Huia (Hunky Dory Wines): Claire and Mike Allan planted the first vines at Huia in 1994 and formally started Huia Vineyards in 1996. From then until now, the health of the earth and the happiness of the people at Huia have always been the most important factor. It takes great land and great people to make great wine. Claire and Mike arrived in Marlborough in 1990 and officially started Huia Vineyards in 1996. Those early years were spent gaining valuable experience in wineries in Marlborough. Mike at Cloudy Bay and Vavasour whilst Claire was at Corbans and Lawson’s Dry Hills. They also both worked and made wine in Champagne at Veuve Cliquot and Taittinger respectively. This diverse, hands-on experience gave them a great grounding in making bright New World wines, but also integrated an appreciation of the sense of land, heritage and tradition from the Old World. When they purchased the wonderful Home block in Rapaura, it took several years to get it cleared, build the house and get the first vines planted. At the same time two gorgeous daughters arrived – Tui and Sophie – and they have played a full part in the continuing journey of Huia...
