One hundred years of wine makes us great hosts

Babich Wines were thrilled to host Chantelle from California as the recipient of our “Win a Trip to New Zealand” competition that ran throughout the USA in 2016.

Chantelle brought her friend Jenna with her to enjoy the prize which included return flights to Auckland for two, lunch with the Babich family, a trip to Marlborough and Queenstown and a bungy jump.

Chantelle thanked us on her return for the “magical moments” made up of exploring beautiful islands and underground caves, discovering the land of hobbits, and gazing in awe at towering mountains on lovely lakes, flowering gardens, and soaring trees. Although they both loved the adrenaline of bungy jumping, she claimed nothing could compare to the hospitality of the Babich family and staff. “Always greeted with a smile and a wealth of information, it was a treasure to get such a first-hand perspective,” she wrote.

As a business celebrating a successful century of award-winning winemaking, we are still humbled by the kind words and gratitude of these visitors we welcomed to our lunch table. It was a wonderful way to reflect and remind us who we have always been; a family at heart, who love to sit down together and share a drop of wine.
