Gladstone Vineyard partners with the Arts Foundation as official wine sponsor — 28.10.15

Wairarapa’s Gladstone Vineyard has further strengthened its association with the arts, becoming official wine sponsor of one of New Zealand’s leading arts organisations, the Arts Foundation.

Owner and chief winemaker Christine Kernohan says, “Gladstone Vineyard is proud to be able to contribute in kind to an organisation that is such a strong supporter of New Zealand artists.”

“Gladstone Vineyard has a long history of backing the arts – since first bringing Victoria University’s Summer Shakespeare to Gladstone Vineyard in 1998.”

Gladstone Vineyard has also sponsored Circa Theatre, Pataka Art + Museum, Kokomai Festival of the Arts, the Oversew Fashion Awards, Shakespeare Globe Centre New Zealand, the New Zealand Book Council, the Oversew Fashion Awards, LitCrawl Wellington and the Dame Malvina Major Foundation.

Christine says, “As wine sponsor of the Arts Foundation we hope to be able to boost their impact when bringing together artists, donors and supporters of the arts. We also hope to show that beautiful wine, like the arts, is good for the soul!”

Gladstone Vineyard’s sponsorship will officially get underway at the Westpac New Zealand Art Awards at Auckland’s Mercury Theatre tonight. This annual event recognises ten outstanding New Zealand creators.
