Cheers to 85 years of winemaking: Selaks celebrates a very important date

Hawke’s Bay winery Selaks is celebrating its history with the launch of 1934 – a range that marks the year its story began 85 years ago.

With a long-standing reputation for crafting distinctive quality wines, Selaks 1934 is a premium range of Hawke’s Bay wines crafted to celebrate the year founder Marino Selak sold his first vintage and to honour the winery’s tradition.

Head winemaker Brett Fullerton, who has been part of the Selaks extended family for 28 years, said the release of the wines was a perfect time to fill a spot in their range.

“This collection showcases the taste of Hawke’s Bay wine. It is also a celebration of our history.

“The 1934 is crafted for the modern palate while paying homage to Selaks’ winemaking tradition.

“As one of New Zealand’s earliest wineries, Selaks is steeped in tradition and expertise, coupled with a thirst for winemaking excellence that has been passed down through many generations.
