What Will Suit the Occasion?
Wine on the Go, 200ml Range
If you don't want to commit to a full bottle just yet or you need just a wee bottle for a trip to the park/beach/bush, we've got you covered!
Buy four of the same, or six of the same, or mix and match by selecting 'Mixed Pack'. (Minimum purchase is 4 bottles)
Eketāhuna is a small rural town in the Tararua district, smack inbetween two famous NZ wine regions; Wairarapa + Hawkes Bay. With the Tararua Ranges as a backdrop and many beautiful rivers + bush, Eketāhuna is a treasure of a place known mythically as the Timbuktu of Aotearoa.
Fruit Wine, Game Changer
We hope that our wines will be a catalyst to change how people will think of fruit wine (not super sweet and pretty damn fine!).
Drinking + supporting fruit winemakers is supporting diversity and game changers.
Catalyst Fruit Wines are for savouring, creating different wine narratives and most importantly, creating occasions!
Plum Tree Cottage
Plum Tree Cottage (our family home) built in 1905, is host to ancient heirloom plum + pear trees, elder, apples, currants, feijoas, walnuts, figs, berries and many herbs.
It's also in vicinity of great foraging spots for blackberries, lemon and grapefruit...(OK, the last two are friends backyards!)
Not Just a Bottle of Wine ~
Planet Earth is in a precarious situation and it is more important than ever to look at our footprint and ensure that 'what' and 'how' we produce has minimal negative impact to our environment.
Here at Catalyst Fruit Wines this is top and foremost in our mind and part of our kaupapa (purpose). All our 750ml bottles are recycled, closed with sustainably sourced corks*. All bottles are recyclable. Fruit is organic and sourced locally. Wine product waste is composted. No animal products are used. And we're always planting trees~ there is no monoculture here!
