Mahana Estates has announced it will be partnering with Kemp Wine Merchants (Great Little Vineyards) as its new domestic distributor for 2017.
The Nelson vineyard has hailed the move as the beginning of a great partnership, particularly by winegrower Michael Glover.
“We are delighted to be working with Kemp Wine Merchants (Great Little Vineyards),” Glover commented.
“We believe they will represent us very well in the New Zealand market.”
Daniel Kemp, managing director of Kemp Wine Merchants (Great Little Vineyards) was equally enthusiastic about the agreement.
“Our core focus and philosophies as a company are shaped and moulded by the brilliant characters behind our great little vineyards, and the incredible wines they produce.”
“Michael and Mahana Estates fit very well with that approach.”
A launch party in celebration of the new agreement will be held at Great Little Vineyards in Remuera on the 2nd December, with a performance by musician Paul Ubana Jones.
Revellers will have the opportunity to sample Mahana’s new range of wines, with presentations being held by winegrower Glover himself.
