MANAWATU WINE CLUB TASTING
On the 13 March 2003 Observing Wines visited the Manawatu Wine Club for a wine tasting evening. The photgraph shows the team with the founders of the wine club Julie and Grant Burnett. It was a great evening with over 100 members attending. Eight wines were presented by Jim Murray. The Manawatu Wine Club was founded in 1996 by Grant and Julie and now it is one of New Zealand’s largest clubs with 900 members. They hold fortnightly tastings which are booked out twelve months ahead. We thoroughly enjoyed the visit to the club and thank Grant and Julie for making us so welcome and wish the club every success.
