"Kia ora - John Orr from New World Devonport here. Keen to discover a new top drop in time for summer?
My favourite wine from this year’s New World Wine Awards is Chalk Hill’s Grenache Tempranillo 2018. As a fan of Rhone Valley Grenache blends, I really enjoyed this Australian variation because it has the full flavour of dark berry fruits with a nice subtle spiciness making it a real pleasure to drink.” And Vaki Plakic from New World Remuera’s pick is Stoneleigh’s Rapaura Chardonnay. “I’m usually a Hawkes Bay Chardonnay fan, but this year I discovered the Rapaura Chardonnay from Marlborough, which is rich in fruit flavour and well balanced. Plus, it’s this year’s Award’s Champion Chardonnay, so you can’t go wrong with this wine!”

Imagine receiving this pamphlet in your letterbox. Would you be compelled to donate?
In 1923 this was sent out to Auckland's citizens, requesting help to raise the remaining £50,000 of the total £200,000 which was needed to build the new Auckland War Memorial Museum. It included a call to donate, initial drawings of the planned Museum and a list of early donors.
The people of Auckland came through and all the funds were raised! The new Auckland Museum was opened on 28 November 1929.
We’re celebrating 90 years of Auckland Museum in Auckland Domain. Read more about the origins of the building here.
Christmas is all about sharing time, gifts and good food with family and friends. Sadly, this isn’t always a reality for many Kiwis. Statistics show that one in five Kiwi children are living in households without access to enough (healthy) food.
You can make a difference. By donating a Christmas Box, for only $30, you will contribute to feeding a family of four to six people for up to a week!
“Without Christmas Box, we would not be having Christmas. We can now have Christmas dinner and enough food to last for a while. You have brought joy to our family and smiles on our kids faces.” – Christmas Box recipient.
Early months of 2020 are filling up so get in quick!
