Negociants New Zealand June Tour

Every year we look forward to the Negociants New Zealand “Aussie & Kiwi Winemakers Tour”. It’s a time when all the Australian and New Zealand producers on the Negociants Portfolio get together under one roof to show new releases and catch up with customers.

What is special about this tour is we all get together as friends. Mostly we do only meet once each year on the tour but we spend most of the week together, catching early morning or evening flights, working hard all day then relaxing over a late dinner and glass of wine. Being part of the Negociants New Zealand family is something special.

Likewise our customers that we meet each year have become friends. So many of them come every year to see us on the tour – but they support us all year and follow us on Facebook or other forums to keep up with our activities.

The schedule was busy – arriving in Auckland on Monday morning – straight into Masterclasses, then trade tasting all afternoon followed by a quick pack-up and off to Wellington. The same schedule flowed from Wellington to Christchurch then finishing in Dunedin.

Thanks Negociants – It’s a great tour, expertly run and well worthwhile.
