8 December 2013Kapiti Food Fair 2013

The Kapiti Food Fair was held last weekend, 30 November, on the last day of Spring.  And the weather didn't 'disappoint', with spring reminding us that changeable weather is the norm.  The conditions were blustery with occasional showers.

Lindale, just north of Paraparaumu is a wonderful little venue, and easily holds the 90+ vendors who display their wares.  Inspite of the conditions the crowd started to roll in at 10:00AM. While not the crowd numbers of previous years those that did brave the elements where in a spending mood.

For us this was the first opportunity we have had to personally present our increased range of wines.  This year we offered tastings and sales of our new Riesling 2013, Rose 2013, Pinot Noir 2012 and Pinot Gris 2011.

The feedback on the Riesling (which has 3 Silver Medals!) and particularly for the Rose (even though the weather wasn't summery at all!) was fantastic.  In fact on the day we ran out of Rose 2013, and came close to clearing all the Pinot Noir stock as well.

All in all it was a great chance to to show the wines, connect with the public and get a feel for what people are wanting to drink.  And in spite of the weather we all a had a good time, so big thank you to Patrick and Jane for all their input on the day.
