In March, Canadian radio broadcaster Terry David Mulligan visited New Zealand to explore our wine regions, meet the personalities behind the wines and investigate the industry’s commitment to sustainability. Terry is the host of a popular weekly one hour food, wine and travel show called “Tasting Room Radio”. His four radio shows are now on-line and can be listened to by clicking on the links below:
3 May 2014 “New Zealand Part 1” http://tastingroomradio.com/may-3rd-2014-new-zealand – The ﬁrst show features Peacock Sky, Destiny Bay, and Villa Maria in Auckland, and Pask in Hawke’s Bay.
7 June 2014 “New Zealand Part 2” http://tastingroomradio.com/june-7th-2014-new-zealand-part-2 – The second show features Elephant Hill, Pask, Trinity Hill, Sileni Estates, and Mission Estate in Hawke’s Bay, and Te Mania, Richmond Plains, and Tohu in Nelson.
13 September 2014 “New Zealand Part 3” http://tastingroomradio.com/september-13th-2014-part-3-new-zealand – The third show features Yealands, Seresin Estate, Brancott Estate, and Staete Landt in Marlborough, and Misha’s Vineyard in Central Otago.
1 November 2014 “New Zealand Part 4” http://tastingroomradio.com/november-1st-2014-new-zealand – The fourth and final show features Felton Road, Carrick and 8 Ranges in Central Otago.
Following his intensive two-week visit, Terry David Mulligan concluded sustainability is “not so much a program as a way of life… New Zealanders are all about being green”. He provides a thoughtful international perspective on the New Zealand wine industry and individual producers. TheShout says it well worth a listen.
