Wine Tasting: Meet the Producer Eradus
Thursday 19th October 2017
6:30pm – 8:30pm
Join Bottles & Battles for an evening of wine tasting with producer Eradus all the way from New Zealand!
Arriving from Holland in 1982, Har, Sophie, and the Eradus kids settled in Auckland. After a 20 year stint in the flower industry, the decision was made to sell up and search NZ for a semi-retirement project.
A vineyard in the stunning Awatere Valley, Marlborough, a valley that was later going to become renowned for producing some of New Zealand’s best Sauvignon Blanc.
In 2004, Hanna and Michiel Eradus took over the reigns.
Apart from laying the foundations for a great wine company, Har and Sophie also discovered the Eradus logo.
When cleaning up the old shed, Sophie found an old “pot belly” door with an embossed logo. Looking carefully, you can make out an “H”, “S” and “E”… Har and Sophie Eradus. It was meant to be!
