The Te Kano Estate tasting room has opened at last.

It’s time to pop the bubbles here at GT WINE HQ, with our very own Digital Editor Dom Sweeney selected as one of 12 successful applicants to attend New Zealand’s prestigious Family of Twelve Tutorial for 2020. Now in its third year, the Tutorial is an immersive wine education experience arranged and led by the Family of Twelve, a group of 12 iconic, family run New Zealand wineries. Participants, who range from wine trade and sommeliers to media professionals, will be guided through a once-in-a lifetime showcase of New Zealand wine.

While the two-day residential tutorial has been postponed for this year, a series of virtual blind-tasting workshops are taking place over the next few months. We are thrilled that Dom is one of the deserving participants and can’t wait to follow the journey with him.

Congratulations, Dom!

Dom Sweeney.
