About this event

It's been three years since we hosted Terra Sancta at our Wine Events. This was a SELL OUT event and everyone loved the wines. This year we have the chance to meet their new Winemaker Andrew Keenleyside.

Wines will be matched with canapés by the team at Aikmans.

Terra Sancta

Terra Sancta means special place. With our four vineyards and winery based in the premium Central Otago subregion of Bannockburn, our soul is the Terra Sancta Estate on Felton Road. Home to the first vines planted in Bannockburn, we are also home to animal assistants - 200 chickens (give or take - they’re very free range), “Baby Doll” sheep and cantankerous goats are a key part of our no-till regenerative, organic farm program. Exceptional old vine fruit farmed by us and fastidious crafting by our winemaking team results in wines that capture the essence of our privileged sites. Each wine, every vintage comes from the same block and, like our unique labels, is crafted to convey a story of provenance.

Andrew Keenleyside

Nominated for "New Zealand Winemaker of the Year" by Gourmet Traveller Wine in 2020, Terra Sancta’s Winemaker Andrew Keenleyside brings a wealth of knowledge and appreciation of place to his role. Originally from the Bay of Plenty, Andrew spent his formative years growing up surrounded by kiwifruit and dairy farms, before gaining an Applied Science degree at Massey University. Returning to his farming roots, the early part of his career was spent working as a vineyard manager giving him both hands-on vineyard experience and a broad perspective on the significance of vineyard balance and health on wine quality. Prior to Terra Sancta, Andrew was the Head Winemaker at well known Central Otago producer, Akarua. With over 20 years of wine experience including 16 vintages in Bannockburn, Andrew is a regional and varietal expert. He is committed to winemaking excellence ,which includes ensuring Terra Sancta’s wines are clear expressions of our unique Bannockburn vineyard sites.
