Meniscus Wines are the 2018 Show Champions of the Alpine Pacific Wine Challenge Competition held in association with the Amberley A&P Show on 27th October. The awards are additional to those obtained in past years from the Canterbury Wine Awards


Of all the 7 wines that Meniscus submitted, medals were awarded from Gold (The Riesling 2018) through to Bronze which is an amazing achievement for our small vineyard. Proving that Meniscus Wines are worthy of their claim that their wines are just as good as the views from the vineyard overlooking the beautiful town of Akaroa.

David said that they were thrilled with the awards and paid tribute to Gavin Tait, client winemaker for Greystone Wines & Muddy Water, in the creation of the wine.

He also acknowledged the dedication of their Vineyard manager Renan Cataliotti for maintaining the vineyard in award-winning quality.

David said that the awards will continue to promote the recognition of the Banks Peninsula region as a unique area in the New Zealand wine industry.
