WINERAM Episode 6 – Waiheki Island and Stonyridge Vineyards

The sixth and final episode of The WINERAM Experience New Zealand is packed with riveting activities and lots of red wine on Waiheki Island north of Auckland. From flying over the island at sunrise to sailing along the coast, scuba diving to shark spotting, our presenters, Jo and Colin, are capping off the New Zealand series with a bang while learning about wine’s maturation process from one of the country’s best winemakers, Steve White at Stonybridge Vineyards.

WINERAM Productions is a relatively young company with an equally young and energetic entrepreneur behind the name, that guy is Colin West. He first got into the wine industry at the young age of 18, yet being from the USA it was illegal for him to pursue his passion, so he flew to Italy. After deciding the wine industry would be the one and only career path for himself, he enrolled in a wine course in Tuscany where he studied underneath Diletta Frescobaldi of the Marchesi de’ Frescobaldi wine family. Since this experience with the Frescobaldi family in Italy, he knew he had found his calling with an area that he could use his business experience in, yet that also included an industry full of passion, history, and even art and science.
