Experience some of Delta's award winning wines, matched with a range of artisan cheeses and deli products from Pātaka's extensive range.

Delta was founded in 2000 by three prominent wine industry veterans and good mates, who wanted to focus on making exceptional pinot noir. Without the commercial limitations of their other projects, the comrades spared no expenses in their Delta venture, investing in not only the best land and vines, but cropping at extremely low levels, hand harvesting with multiple picks throughout the harvest season, and using self-indulgent winemaking techniques.

The investment paid off, with Delta wines receiving several high profile quality awards. In the following years Delta slowly began to add other varieties to its portfolio, as vineyard sites were identified that would produce exceptional and unique wines for a particular variety.

The wines will be presented by Heather Stewart and Alison Downs, head winemaker and brand manager respectively for Delta. She moved to Marlborough in 2008 after completing a Master of Science in Psychology at Canterbury University.

Since basing herself in Marlborough she has completed a Graduate Diploma in Oenology, and has worked harvests for prominent high end wine companies in Tuscany and California. Heather has spent five years as assistant winemaker at a large family wine company before taking on the role of winemaker for The Delta Wine Company.

There will be six great wines (yes, one extra this month) matched with cheese and deli products. Heather will give a brief history of the Delta company, share some of the winemaking techniques and happily answer you questions.

Relax in Pātaka's cosy, friendly atmosphere and enjoy great wines, stories, gourmet foods and the company of good friends.
