Jane Ferrari – Yalumba

At the end of June, Jane Ferrari will be making a whirlwind visit to the Hawkes Bay to compete as part of Team Australia in The Grape Debate.  If you have never heard of The Grape debate, it is a trans-Tasman duel over winemaking.  Last year’s debate was “Australia makes better wine than New Zealand’, which incidentally Australia won with Jane as first speaker.   It is top entertainment, moderated by funny man Jeremy Corbett and all profits go to charity.  She will then be back again in August for The Grape Debate in Auckland and she will also be showing the latest releases from Yalumba to trade and consumers in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

The Grape Debate

  • Napier at Te Awa Winery on Saturday 29th June
  • Auckland at Villa Maria on Saturday 31st August
