There's an 'official day窶 for everything nowadays, but this is one we can really get behind. 'Open That Bottle Night' is dedicated to making sure that those bottles of fine wine put away for a special occasion, are used and enjoyed. Created in 2000 by 窶狼astings窶 columnists Dorothy J. Gaiter and John Brecher, 窶楼pen That Bottle Night窶 is an annual occasion that aims to motivate people to reconnect with each other over a bottle. So if you have managed to save a bottle of fine #nzwine long enough 窶 tonight窶冱 the night to crack it open, share it around and create memories with friends and family! #nzwine #openthatbottlenight

As well as producing exceptional wines, Kiwis in the #nzwine industry also do some pretty amazing stuff to make the world a better place. For this #WineWednesday we take a look at @27secondswine, a Canterbury wine label which is donating 100% of its profits to an anti-trafficking charity. Pete and Alana Chapman, the team behind this amazing initiative, returned from an eye-opening trip to India appalled at the modern-day slavery on display. An idea formed to make surplus grapes from Pete窶冱 parents窶 vineyard, @terraceedge, into wine with all profits going towards helping survivors of trafficking via the Hagar Organisation. Through tremendous support from others within the wine industry, including the winemakers at @greystonewines who make the wines at heavily reduced costs, they launched @27secondswine. The name of the label came about because every 27 seconds, somewhere in the world, a person is sold or trafficked into slavery. Pete says 窶弩e wanted a name that tells the story. When anyone asks why it is called 27 Seconds, with one sentence we can make them understand.窶 To find out more or purchase wine visit 窶楼ur People, our Stories窶  #linkinbio .

Moody skies in #Queenstown but luckily we were still able to #chopper in to the magnificent @amisfieldvineyard! #NewZealand really does have the most amazing #scenery...(and wine 沽懺沚キ )
We know #nzwine is famous for its zingy Sauvignon Blanc and rich Pinot Noir, but this #WineWednesday we wanted to look at one of our lesser known aromatic varieties that doesn窶冲 get much time in the spotlight; Albariテアo (窶彗lba-reen-yo窶). Hailing from Galicia in north-eastern Spain, Albariテアo has made a happy home in New Zealand, and is now found throughout the country's regions, with more concentrated plantings developing in Gisborne, Marlborough and Hawke's Bay. Albariテアo is a variety of white wine, typically light to medium-bodied and fruit-focused, rich in peach and citrus with a lift of fennel, lemongrass and light spice. Refreshing and tangy, Albariテアo pairs well with fresh seafood, and is the perfect addition to a long lunch in summer! .

We thought it was about time we threw the spotlight on another one of our fantastic #nzwine regions, and so for today窶冱 #WineWednesday we want to tell you a bit more about beautiful Nelson. This scenic wine region is situated on the northern tip of the South Island, and it touted as the sunniest region in New Zealand. Nelson is a boutique wine region producing outstanding aromatics, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, as well as an impressive mix of emerging varieties. Lucky visitors will find remarkable wine experiences spread across two sub-regions; the Waimea Plains and the Moutere Hills. Pioneering 1970s producers established the modern wine industry 窶 and now there are a bounty of premium wineries and iconic names such as @seifriedestate and @neudorfvineyards still going strong. Put Nelson on your 窶狼o Do窶 List for 2018! Image credit goes to @mahanaestates . For more info visit #linkinbio #nzwine #nelson #nelsonwine .

We're pretty excited for @rieslingdownunder and #rieslingriot kicking off this weekend! Not all these legends of #nzwine can join us, but lucky for you, we'll be pouring their famous examples of this revered variety at Riesling Riot in Melbourne this Sunday and then doing it all again in Sydney on Wednesday.

Happy Waitangi Day to all the Kiwis out there! Every year on 6 February, New Zealand marks the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi in 1840. In that year, representatives of the British Crown and over 500 Mト{ri chiefs signed what is often considered to be New Zealand窶冱 founding document. The day was first officially commemorated in 1934, and it has been a public holiday since 1974 (@NZHistory). Kiwis around the world take the day to appreciate what a special place New Zealand is, spend it with loved ones (and of course it窶冱 a good excuse to have a glass of #nzwine in celebration!) #nzwine #newzealand #kiwi #lovenz #waitangi
