    Event description

    Join the Wellington and Wairarapa Chapters as they host their first joint event in the beautiful Wairarapa. Make it an afternoon and enjoy some wonderful wine and food from Nga Waka.

    We’ll hear Victoria Read speak about her inspiration for the design of the beautiful Nga Waka Cellar door building. Victoria said of the design, “We took inspiration from the legend behind the brand name, the great Māori explorer Kupe –  the range of hills to the South East of Martinborough named Ngā Waka-a-Kupe and Ngā-rā-o-Kupe in the South (The sails of Kupe)”.
