Seduced by Foxes Island


After attending an Elite Yelp event last night at ‘The Cellar Door’ in Ponsonby, I was (truly) enlightened by the charismatic John Belsham (Founder & Winemaker) from Foxes Island Wine. He spoke passionately about his Marlborough vineyard, “crafting wines that are quintessentially New Zealand, regionally and varietally expressive and exquisitely made.”

Well he was not wrong.

I sampled the Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay and my all time favourite, Pinot Noir. These exceptionally crafted wines are not available in the Supermarket, only selected restaurants and specialised food stores, like Nosh.

Antipodes Water was also on hand, to cleanse the palate and educate the yelpers about the incredible story of ‘Antipodes’.

“Antipodes was the first premium water in the world to be carbon neutral, to the dining table anywhere in the world – a pure water untouched from the source 327 metres below the surface!”

Aren’t you proud that both these products are sustainable and made in New Zealand?

Lastly, Bread & Butter Bakery spoiled us with rustic, gourmet breads, soft cheeses and green olives, to boot.

Yelping loudly.
