Posted by Joelle Thomson on

Join us for a fabulous virtual tasting this Friday 1 May - for World Sauvignon Blanc Day.

Celebrate all things Sauvignon, glass in hand, with Whitehaven Wines from Marlborough for a 15 minute tasting hosted by wine writer, author and Regional Wines adviser Joelle Thomson, who will  guide us through a fun tasting of two Sauvignons from Whitehaven in Marlborough. She tells the romantic tale of how Sue and Greg White's sailing adventures landed them in the Marlborough Sounds where they were sheltering from a Pacific storm after a long term sailing trip. The beauty of the place inspired their desire to make wine in this stunningly picturesque region's early days of modern winemaking. 

Whitehaven has a brand new winemaker this year too, namely Peter Jackson, who shares information about vintage 2020 - and what we can look forward to.

Learn why Sauvignon Blanc makes up 85.6% of New Zealand wine exports and, more importantly, why wine drinkers love it so much.

We'll discuss...

  • Winemaking and growing 
  • Sub regions in Marlborough 
  • How to taste
  • Serving temperature 
  • Food matches 
  • And lots more, including awards aplenty for this great brand


Join us at 5pm this Friday 1 May - 15 minutes of white wine bliss.
