Using plates of food to tell our stories has always been baked into the DNA of Eat New Zealand. The following hashtags capture in simple ways values that are complex and hugely important to us as a movement.

The Wine List: Pouring what comes next…
As part of the event we will be showcasing these three incredible winemakers from within our Eat NZ Kaitaki collective.
Siren Wine by Ashleigh Barrowman is made by a woman who has worked within the natural wine industry for the last 10 years. Ashleigh has an impressive resume; having trained under some of the most well regarded vignerons around the world in Burgundy, Jura, Sicily, Victoria and home here in Marlborough. Having worked across everything from grape growing and pruning, through to production and international distribution to importation and retail. Siren Wine is her passion project, and the accumulation of many years learning from her mentors. Ashleigh produces certified organic, single vineyard wines from Marlborough, New Zealand. All are unfined, unfiltered, wild fermented and contain low to no sulphites, reflective of time and place.
Huntress Wines is a small brand by Jannine Rickards (Ngā puhi & Ngā te Rangi) who is based in the Wairarapa. She is a keen hunter, forager and foodie, who is comitted to full utilisation of the animals she hunts. Jannine makes thoughtful, expressive and complex wines from organic grapes from the Wairarapa and Hawkes Bay regions. They are textural wines that pair really well with kai, and are a direct reflection of the land (whenua).
Vita Wines are made by Will Lyons-Bowman (Ngāpuhi) in the Waipara Valley in North Canterbury, New Zealand. Will has spent his whole wine-life in organic and biodynamic vineyards - Black Estate, Millton and Greystone (NZ) and Olek Bondonio (Italy) - which have heavily influenced his growing and making philosophy. He produces wine that is brimming with energy. For him living vineyards make living wines! Hand harvested and organically farmed the fruit is treated simply, allowing it to be a lively, pure and moreish expression of the land where it grew. Will lives in Ōtautahi with his wife Jane and two naughty sheep dogs, Mary and Dot.
