Sujon Berryfruits Marketing Manager – Michelle Manson greets Prince Charles. The delicious blackcurrant and organic dark chocolate truffles shown on table ready to be served.

The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall (also known as Charles and Camilla) visited the Mahana winery on  Saturday 7th November. They came to experience a wide range of local Nelson produce that’s been christened “From Source to Serve”. This included dishes prepared by local chefs from local produce matched with local wines, craft beers and cider.

The Duchess of Cornwall is President of The United Kingdom Vineyards Association, so a visit to one of New Zealand’s premier wine regions is very fitting. Mahana was chosen as the venue not only for its spectacular views across the Nelson region, taking in mountains, sea and grape vines, but also because it is an organic, gravity-fed winery, which is of particular interest to The Prince of Wales.
