14 Sep 2012 - Celebrating 75 Vintages - 2012
The 2012 harvest/ vintage is officially the 75th for Brookfields Vineyards. Founded in 1937, Brookfields is Hawke's Bay's Oldest Boutique Winery. Very shortly we are to bottle the first wines from the 2012 vintage. The 'first' 75th vintage wine / varietal should be the 2012 'Ohiti Estate' Sauvignon Blanc. Keep in touch with Brookfields and your local 'Fine Wine Retailer' for the release date. This is a milestone for New Zealand, plus for the world of wine, having a winery celebrating 75 years.
17 Apr 2012 - Harvest / Vintage 2012
This year’s vintage/ harvest has been difficult with the variable growing season - and is currently half way through, with most of the white grapes harvested, crushed and pressed. Hawke's Bay is experiencing a late partial 'Indian' summer - long may it continue, thus ensuring our red varieties can fully ripen.
17 Feb 2012 - Charleston at Brookers 2012 - Tickets $75.
The 'Charleston at Brookers' is a most memorable of nights with dance. On arrival at Brookfields, you received a complimentary glass of bubbles. A lovely dinner was served and everyone enjoyed their favourite Brookfields wines with good food and friends. 'Feet with Heat' performed and also taught the Charleston, and then the 'Kawekas' band kept everyone dancing until the buses took guests back to Napier.
