Ant Moore Tasting
July 17 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Beautiful wines that wont break the bank!
Originally from Australia, Ant moved to New Zealand in 2002 and has since undertaken every adventure required to make wine. He’s developed a number of bareblocks into vineyards, bought a winery and built it up, and created a number of successful wine brands. With the benefit of hard-earned experience, he now has the signature wine “ant moore”.
Ant is hands on with every aspect of the production, from managing vines, harvesting the fruit, to processing the wine. He’s not afraid to try new and different approaches and to push boundaries. To Ant, that’s what making wine is all about, constantly learning and enjoying the creative expression that is making wine.
Using a combination of old-world techniques and modern wine making practices, he has crafted a range of great value wines of a quality that he’d love to drink himself. They tend to be characterized by dryness and purity. Just as important, they are all about balance and character – values that Ant explains “we live by on the vineyard and in our personal lives”.

Domaine Ott Tasting
July 24 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
n 1896, after a tour of France’s many vineyards, Marcel Ott, a young graduate in agronomy engineering from Alsace, finally found an estate that inspired him. To set the scene, we are in Provence. The Mediterranean is lapping at the shore a mere stone’s throw away…
In these parts, growing vines is the legacy of ancient times. Alas, a short while before Marcel Ott’s discovery, phylloxera had wreaked havoc on the vines. The land was cheaper, but the vineyards would have to be replanted. The wine had lost a great deal of its soul in the vineyard’s reconstruction. Marcel Ott bought several estates and began renovating them with the determined ambition to create great Provencal wines from noble grape varieties.
July 25 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
For over 30-years founder Neal Rosenthal has been importing fine wines from Europe, focused on presenting the finest examples made in the classical western European tradition. With a passion for working with producers that capture an ephemeral sense of place in their wines, Rosenthal is proud to put forward a selection that is both distinctive and consistent in style.
Wines are selected for concentration, purity of flavors, and clarity of expression. All products brought to the marketplace by RWM are produced in as natural a manner as possible, with a strong belief in sustainable and organic agriculture. Selections have a striking balance between finesse and power which results in exceedingly age worthy wines. RWM refuses to stray from this high standard despite the rigors of a marketplace that frequently casts about for the newest wine making fad or demands more wine from the “hot sources”.
