The Third Man



The-Third-Man-1949-Front-Cover-18180[1] Last year, a wine-maker from Waipara was a guest at my home. After a few drinks, I suggested that we watch the film The Third Man.  One of my favourites. Well, the next time he turned up to my door, he was carrying bottles of 'The Third Man' Pinot Noir and Riesling. They are small volume, artisan crafted wines that use only wild yeasts in the fermentation.  And they’re damned tasty.

I mention this, because they have finally made it up here to Auckland and you can taste them yourself at La Barrique in Remuera today from 4:30 to 6:30.

Don’t be late.
