Get ready for the start of picnic season with two very special wines, perfect for al fresco enjoyment
The bees are out, flowers are in bloom and the weather is heating up. It’s time to get out into that great Kiwi outdoors and enjoy the aromas and flavours that go with it.
Rosé and pinot gris make for great wines to enjoy outside, particularly in Kiwi gardens which are often full of blossom, fruit trees and berry patches bearing many of the same notes that can be found in these tantalizing wines.
Similarly, Sacred Hill’s Origin range is inspired by the raw, natural beauty of the land in which the wines originate. Here are our two favourite Sacred Hill wines for outdoor summertime enjoyment…
