We’re excited to announce that Luna Estate will be our exclusive wine partner at this year’s show.

Gala Evening guests will enjoy some very fine wine from Luna Estate’s cellars.

Martinborough is home to premier winemaker Luna Estate. Their passionate and dedicated team tends the vineyards, handpicks the fruit and they are proud to pair modern technology with age-old winemaking craft. They have a proudly Pinot Noir focus, but they also produce Syrah, Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Meunier Rosé. We can’t wait to see what they will be serving up at the Gala.

Speaking of rosé: if you look closely at this image of the Pinot Meunier Rosé, you may recognise the artwork on the label: it’s Jane Blackmore’s stunning floral painting ‘Beautiful Remedy’.
