Wineseeker Celebrates 10 Years!

Posted by katie.merrie@wineseeker.co.nz on

10 Years – doesn’t time fly!?  June 2014 marked the 10 year Anniversary of Wineseeker. 

Originally named ‘Bond Street Liquor’ – road closures and water-main replacements prompted a relocation to our current site in Victoria Street and a name change to ‘Wineseeker.’ 

In just a decade we’ve seen numerous changes in the wine market, the explosion of interest in NZ wines overseas (especially the ubiquitous Marlborough Savvy), the supermarkets entering the marketplace, and an increased interest in more interesting and international wines.   New Zealand now boasts almost 800 different wineries.  Oh so many wines with so little time.

We’ve evolved as well, running more in-store events particularly those exploring different regions of the wine world outside New Zealand - traditional Olde World like French Bordeaux and Burgundy to the more exotic South Africa and South America.
