Singapore Food Festival Hawker Wine Safaris

Published - 09 January 2018, Tuesday

Te Hera Estate vineyard and winery is the passion of John Douglas, one of the very first to plant out at Te Muna Road in 1996, primarily in Pinot Noir. 

John, his family and their label, take inspiration from their ancestors, both Maori and Pakeha, who undertook heroic voyages in sailing ships, in difficult conditions to reach these shores of New Zealand in the 1840’s, seeking a new life for themselves and their loved ones.  The Te Hera journey or adventure has been to take a small piece of bare land and turn it into the base of a thriving small wine business.

John Douglas is special guest at our Singapore Food Festival Hawker Wine Safaris this week, guiding our intrepid guests on a winemaker-led journey, discovering the beautiful fusion of his elegant, cool-climate Martinborough wines with local, hawker cuisine!

I always enjoy reading how a wine has become the taste it is today when it hits my palate. Enjoyed reading this and notice they are near me at Newton Food center tonight. Going to go and have a taste and good old chat.
