2016 Christmas Specials


Dear Friends, 

If you are anything like us here at Forrest, you will probably be thinking, where has the year gone? So much has happened in 2016 but sadly much of the good stuff gets put aside after the massive Kaikoura earthquake. We suffered very little damage here, but our hearts are with the ones that haven't got it so easy - our friends in the wine industry and the people of the towns affected by the quakes.

2016 was a good year for us. We had a great vintage with an abundance of ripe fruit and a good vintage team. We've received acknowledgements with trophies, gold medals and great reviews. We have released lovely wines, like our 2016 The Doctors’”Rose and re-visited some great vintages - those great aged wines that remind us where we come from and allows us to make sure the path we are following is the one we want to walk. It's not always easy. We are a small family owned winery, we count our core staff with 2 hands! That's what 2016 has been for us, a deep look to the heart and soul of Forrest Wines to make sure we know who we are and where we are going. We definitely a family owned company with a good succession plan with our winemaker daughter Beth coordinating production and our two sons taking an active but hands off interest. We have no intention on selling out to the big boys

Our Christmas offerings this year reflect this focus. We have two very distinctive specials, a Forrest pack and a The Doctors'. You will find in both a great selection, including that bottle of bubbly you will need for your celebrations. Packed into 6 packs, they are great value for money, if you prefer 12 bottles, you can get 1 of each, or any combination. Your savings are even better that way.

We will be emailing you about these specials weekly, alongside other surprises for the club members. Remember to check your emails so you don't miss out, as there will be some other, very limited specials.

Merry Christmas and happy celebrations, 

Go safely and enjoy a special family summer.
