When Raewyn Atkinson left New Zealand to live in the USA, we were very sad to see her go. An acclaimed ceramic artist, we enjoyed catching up with her and Shaun in Wellington during our visits there -often sharing a glass of wine and meal with them.

The olive oil dishes for sale in our cellar door are a lovely reminder of her, as are the specially commissioned tableware and 'Light' installation at Waterfall Bay.

Of course we haven't lost touch with them and we especially enjoy hearing about their adventures in the USA. As unofficial brand ambassadors, they are busy introducing their new friends to our wines.

Here, Shaun is loading up with supplies from Vintage Berkeley - aptly located on Vine Street. Apparently the 2008 Seresin Sauvignon Blanc was a big hit with friends during a vacation at Lake Tahoe.

We're pleased they're enjoying a small part of New Zealand in the USA.
