We visited New Zealand to look at a vineyard for sale in the south but a chance to rest and recover on Waiheke before flying south changed our minds. During our short stay we became enchanted with Waiheke Island, the bourgeoning reputation for Waiheke wines also helped.
Wines created by Batch Winery on Waiheke are batch-driven and boutique. Each wine created by Batch Winery carries a label reflecting the care of each batch of grapes to wine with unique “batch” numbers referencing vintage years and styles of wine. The label also recalls the colours of wine in tone and shade from pale lemon lime to claret and rose.
The name of Batch Winery recalls all this and more. There is also another influence. New Zealand’s iconic “bach” is a word that sounds the same and importantly, recalls New Zealand’s relaxed family holiday lifestyle. The New Zealand word “bach” references a holiday home, often simple and by the sea, a place where extended family relaxes together building family memories, a concept synonymous with Waiheke Island.”
