Claremont Garden Party 2019

What a day!  Running our wine stall at the Garden Fete held at Claremont House, on a perfect summer’s day was a highlight!  Our wine stall luckily was in the shade of the gorgeous gardens and our Methode Traditionelle “Milestone Bubbles” served chilled with local Waimate strawberries proved very popular… perfect for the Garden Fete occasion.  We had a great day and were delighted to see many of our long time Point Bush Wine friends stop by to chat and wine taste and t...

We had programmed our trusty Sat Nav with GLASGOW as the destination, 10 minutes of 'downloading' later we were off. Two hours later we had been diligently following all her directions to the letter of the law and had an ama...

Hops n Hooves 2018

We had the absolute PLEASURE of hitting the road to head to Twizel for the annual Hops N Hooves event held there on Queens Birthday weekend. We have loved supporting this event for the last few years, (plus we are long time stallholders at the summer Salmon and Wine festival each year!) Safe to say we LOVE heading through to Twizel with our Point Bush Wines in tow....
