Purrfect Pinot Noir from Luna Estate

We are delighted to announce that our Wine Partner, Luna Estate, has just released Purffect Pinot Noir.

Luna Estate is renowned for fine wines, especially the Pinot Noir range, and this latest addition is a special wine created by their Front of House and back office staff under the watchful eye of their wine maker.

The desire to make a positive contribution to their local community in Wairarapa was the inspiration for this wine and all profits from the sales of Purrfect will be set aside for the benefit of their local community.

But what also excites us is that the label for the Purrfect depicts an artwork by regular NZ Art Show exhibitor Nick Fedaeff, aka Catman.  Luna Estate representatives saw his art at the 2019 NZ Art Show and were immediately charmed by the artwork they selected.

Wine, art, and community: Purrrrrrfect!
