In November, Sing See Soon and Matakana Wines hosted a Movember event.
Movember (a portmanteau of the Australian-English diminutive word for moustache, “mo”, and “November”) is a popular annual event, where guys grow mustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer and men’s suicide. We hosted a similar event for October, which was Breast Cancer Awareness month.
And for those who couldn’t or didn’t want to grow one, we made sure it was possible for everyone to have mo for the night too…
Did you know that we also stock the exquisite Matakana Wines? Matakana Estate Wines – their aim is to make full-bodied red wines that combine the inherent power, complexity and elegance of Bordeaux-style reds with the distinctive personality of the Hawke’s Bay terroir. From their website:
“Matakana Estate has been at the forefront of local winemaking since this premium, boutique wine region was first developed some 30 years ago. Like many respected New Zealand wineries, Matakana Estate was established by descendants of Croatian migrants who settled in and around Auckland more than 100 years ago. From the very beginning, the winery established itself as a producer of top quality wines, attracting attention and plaudits worldwide, and winning a number of awards in international wine competitions.
Our philosophy has always been to capture the essence of New Zealand’s finest grape varieties from the regions where they grow best, so as well as making wines from our own substantial Matakana vineyards, we seek out limited amounts of premium grapes from selected wine regions further afield to make the very best wines we can.”
The event was a smashing success, with guests donning mo’s and other party props. Lots of catching up with old friends and making new ones. Thank you to everyone who made it such a great event!
