Pruning has started at Owhanake Bay Vineyard

Pruning started today. Christy makes the all important cuts, and I follow along sealing the wounds. Lovely pruning weather

A holiday at Tutukaka

A holiday on the beautiful Tutukaka coast is always a welcome treat. People often wonder where we go to holiday given that we live in such a beautiful place. Here’s Whale Bay… enough said!

Visited Whale Bay on the Tutukaka coast today as a family. Just beautiful. Like walking in a calendar photo.
