Villa Maria winery selling 31ha of land in Māngere to fund expansion

Brittany Keogh Reporter from Manukau Courier

Hi neighbours, Villa Maria Estate in Māngere has announced plans to put some of the vineyard and bare land on the market so that it can invest in viticulture, wineries and marketing to grow its brand in overseas markets, such as North America and Asia. The company's CEO says the land value has increased "to a point where it is not possible to generate a reasonable return on these vineyards". Its winery, bottling service, warehouse and head office will continue to operate on the remaining 10 hectares.

Grow an extra row


While some Kiwis are enjoying home grown vegies, many are going without vegetables altogether.

This National Gardening Week we’re encouraging gardeners to grow-an-extra-row to share with neighbours, community pantries, food banks and other local food donation agencies.

To help get your extra row underway Yates is lending a helping hand.

Just register online HERE between 1st and 25th October to receive a FREE packet of Yates Vegie Seeds.

Once you’ve grown your vegies to share (or if you have spare now) please visit HERE to find a list of the organisations that would welcome your donation of fresh homegrown vegies.
