Taste Sensation — 16.10.12

Arts Foundation's new partner offers tasty ways to support the arts

It's a centuries old tradition and an inseparable mix. We all know that art goes perfectly with wine. The tradition of pairing the two is being carried on in good faith and cheer by the Arts Foundation and its brand new partner, Foley Family Wines.


We are very proud to be associated with Foley Family Wines. This innovative company has some of the best brands in New Zealand for sale via their wine-exchange website and is closely associated with the Wharekauhau Wine Society.

And they are generous.  In addition to providing wine for Arts Foundation events, they will donate $10 to the Arts Foundation when a case of Vavasour (12 bottles) is purchased before 31 March 2013.  Purchase any other brand and $5 per case (12 bottles) will be donated.  So if you are thirsty and would like to support us, go to wine-exchange.co.nz.  When making a purchase use ARTS as the promotion code.

In addition, any case purchase from wine-exchange.co.nz before March 31 using the ARTS code means you will get 40% off the full accommodation rate at Wharekauhau Country Estate. This includes luxury accommodation in a Cottage Suite, evening pre-dinner drinks & canapés, four-course gourmet dinner each evening, daily cooked country-breakfast. This offer is subject to room availability and expires 31 December 2012.

Foley Family Wines is also extending a special offer to Arts Foundation followers in conjunction with Toast Martinborough.
