Tohu Wine Dinner

Tohu Wine Dinner

Winter evenings are a great excuse to head out and enjoy a nice evening with friends, our wine dinners being one. Last week we hosted and showcased Tohu Wines. The first and mostly widely recognised Maori owned wine company in the world, Tohu has focused on producing estate grown, single vineyard wines from New Zealand’s premier grape growing regions.
