"Fill your own bottle" at Heron's Flight, Matakana's original cellar door.

The owners of boutique vineyard Heron's Flight, David Hoskins and Mary Evans, invite the public to a unique event at their family-owned vineyard.

Guests will be welcomed beyond the cellar door on 27 November from 9:30am onwards to fill their own bottle of a special batch of 2014 Sangiovese.

The 2014 Sangiovese is a deep purple-ruby colour that carries excellent density, ripe cherry and plum fruit flavours and a well-integrated structure. It boasts liquorice, earth and tobacco notes - (Stefano Guidi).

On the day, guests can fill their own bottle of this unique wine for $13, or for an additional $1 will be given a bottle and cork - minimum of six bottles.

A relaxed day amidst the vines, roses, olives and fig trees; a local bluegrass band will play from 11am and guests are invited to bring along the picnic, or sample a wealth of offerings from the cabinet fridge or a relaxed barbeque.

Heron’s Flight, featured in Conde Nast Traveller, The Listener, the Herald on Sunday, Cuisine and Taste Magazines, is the only vineyard in New Zealand to grow only the Italian grape varietals Sangiovese and Dolcetto.
