Thanks for Coming!

Three cities, twenty suppliers, and a whole lot of fun!

Thank you to all the suppliers that attended our first ever Sensorium. We have deep respect for the suppliers that traveled near, far, and through tornados to share their knowledge, stories, and commitment to quality wine.

Thank you to our suppliers who generously supported us from afar to make the events happen. Their dedication to providing us and our customers with an exquisite selection of wines, was a testament to their expertise, passion, and experience in the craft.

And a big you to the New Zealand hospitality trade industry for attending and sampling these wonders that you so well enjoy and deserve. We look forward to more collaborative opportunities in the very near future.

Stay tuned for dates to be released for the next Sensorium...
