Our first Seresin wine tasting and networking evening marked DEGNZ’s final Screenlink event for the year.
Seresin Estate, founded in 1992 in Marlborough by New Zealand cinematographer Michael Seresin, has been a supporter of the Guild for several years. Pair that with some really excellent and not your typical New Zealand wines (for instance, although many people steer clear from Gewürztraminer, Executive Director Tui Ruwhiu is always recommending Seresin’s), it’s no surprise that the Guild has long wanted to run a Seresin wine tasting for our members.
The stars finally aligned and we were able to welcome Seresin head winemaker Clive Dougall. DEGNZ was in good company with members from the Composers Guild (SCGNZ), Writers Guild (NZWG) and Screen Production and Development Association (SPADA) joining us.
With passion and humour, Clive presented half a dozen fine wines to attendees. He shared the philosophy behind their organic and biodynamic winemaking that comes out of Michael Seresin’s desire to make wine as naturally as possible.
All in all, it was a casual and informative evening, and you didn’t have to be a wine connoisseur to enjoy it.
