Tickets start at only $48/person which grants you access to all wines available at the event, and no token system! This is split across two sessions from 1pm to 3pm and 4pm to 8:30pm.

Great Little Vineyards (GLV) in collaboration with Starkwhite Gallery will be hosting its fifth annual portfolio tasting on September 20th, 2021, at the incomparable venue Shed 10. GLV is no ordinary wine merchant, and The Art of Wine is no ordinary wine showcase. This event will bring together the visionary winemakers of tomorrow from the 35+ cutting-edge artisanal producers in the GLV portfolio under one roof, surrounded by art from some of New Zealand's greatest talents.
The Art of Wine 2021 will be a dynamic journey through diverse and creative wines, hosted by the artisans who craft them. This will make The Art of Wine 2021 more than just a product showcase. It will be an all-encompassing cultural event attended by the country’s most prolific artists, musicians and media personalities.
Great art and great wine are inextricably linked. The Great Little Vineyards philosophy is all about treating wine as an expression of people and place: a handcrafted product of talented producers and their efforts. The portfolio has been carefully curated and relationships with the winemakers fostered by former successful restaurateur, now managing director, Daniel Kemp over fifteen years in the business. GLV’s wines defy convention and embrace the experimental, the genre-defying, the unexpected and unexplored. No other wine merchant in New Zealand has embraced this philosophy so completely.
This event is not just about showcasing great wine. By hosting this diverse range of winemakers from New Zealand and across the globe, GLV will be exposing a huge range of products, styles and personalities. This will also make The Art of Wine 2021 an educational event, introducing the most cutting-edge wine production techniques, and the colourful characters behind them, to the public. This will include workshops and group discussions with winemakers, and opportunities to interact with wine differently: specific wines paired with specific artworks, and making use of different spaces and environments throughout the venue.
The Art of Wine 2021 will be an immersive and engaging experience across all levels. GLV’s intention is to expand horizons and defy expectations in a wine market that too often favours characterless mass-production over expressions of real beauty and individuality.

Central Otago, NZ
Akitu, in the Maori language, means the summit, the apex or the highest point. We called our wine that because at 380 metres above sea level we are right up there, right on the grape growing edge, against the alps and in the southern most winemaking region on earth. Here our entire vineyard is dedicated to Pinot Noir – that’s all we grow, the very best of our harvest makes Akitu. - Learn More/See Wines
The evocative and celebrated scenery of the Langhe is the backdrop to the history and activity of our small family business, founded in the far 1900. We are located in Diano d’alba, a small rural village, situated on soft, green hills. The geographic coordinates are important to know the peculiarities of a unique territory: the same peculiarities that Claudio Alario knows, owner and soul of the company. - Learn More/See Wines
Founded on a steep, iron-rich and elevated micro-block in 1998, Caiarossa cemented their reputation early when they pulled through their first vintage, the notoriously difficult heatwave year of 2003, with exceptionally well-balanced results. Since then, they have gone from strength to strength, skyrocketing to an unprecedented level of refinement for such a relatively new estate. Described by renowned critic James Suckling as one of his “go-to Super-Tuscans, because of their drinkability and complexity”, Caiarossa’s world-class quality has yet to correspond with the wine’s price. - Learn More/See Wines
Château le Puy
At Château le Puy we practice organic and biodynamic viticulture, a modern way of saying we tend to the vines just as our Grandfathers did; no chemical fertilizers, no herbicides and no artificial insecticides. During the harvests we take particular care ensure grapes are not crushed on their way to the winery. There is thus practically no oxidation before fermentation begins. We also avoid adding any extra yeasts or sugars. - Learn More/See Wines
With exacting qualitative and biodynamic practices, the vines have flourished and now yield results worthy of the estate’s proud tradition. To do justice to the quality of the grapes, we have built a state-of-the-art, gravity-fed winery. Our vintages bear the hallmark of our efforts; they are completely natural, yet elegant, refined and complex. Our label is Chêne Bleu, after a magnificent, venerable “blue” oak tree on the estate that symbolises the beauty and uniqueness of our vineyard and its wines. - Learn More/See Wines
Corofin and the Paterson family are inextricably linked through people and place. Corofin village on the river Fergus in County Clare Ireland was the home of Clifton House, residence of Marcus Joseph Paterson and his young family, prior to emigrating to New Zealand. The significance of Corofin as a spiritual home to the Paterson family has been recognised by every generation since Marcus and his family settled in Hawkes Bay in 1927. Home for Mike was a farm in the heart of the Waikato at Tauwhare — named Corofin. Learn More/See Wines
Margaret River, Australia
Cullen is a legendary, Margaret River Vineyard. Diana and Kevin Cullen were THE Margaret River pioneers back in the late 60’s. Kevin and Di Cullen planted a trial acre of vines at Wilyabrup in 1966 to form Cullen Wines. The encouraging results of this led to the planting of 18 acres of vines in 1971, including their first Cabernet vines. Daughter Vanya Cullen, took over the winemaking in 1989 and Cullen Wines has evolved into an estate specialising in single vineyard, premium quality wines. - Learn More/See Wines
Domaine de la Solitude
Rhône Valley, France
In more modern times, Domaine de la Solitude has been turned around by Florent Lançon, receiving numerous top accolades and being named amongst Jancis Robinson’s favourite Châteauneuf-du-Pape producers. The 86ha holdings are farmed without fertilisation, and the wines are destemmed, unfined, unfiltered and gravity fed, with grapes and plots vinified separately. The estate is also old enough that they have their own lieux-dit, ‘La solitude’, which has been farmed by the same family for 400 years. - Learn More/See Wines
Dosterras is all about producing quality wines in a boutique setup, striving to always take care down to the last detail. Taking what the terroir offers to convert it into memories with friends, family and people they love is their philosophy. Under the new ownership, Dosterras has been revived. This is why they have created Dosterras Naixement, a limited edition of 1,000 bottles per year accompanied by the artwork of Eduardo Recife (a Brazilian illustrator), who year after year, reflects in the label what happens during the harvest in the terroir, at the winery and in the lives from those who work there. - Learn More/See Wines
Finca Bacara & Ego Bodegas
Our wines are born from a creative process, both in their development as in their design. The D.O.P. Jumilla is located in the southeast of Spain, and is characterised by its large high-elevation plains and valleys. The climate of the region is sunny and arid, with little rain, no more than 300 litres per square metre per year. The average annual temperature is around 16 degrees. Winters are cold, dropping below zero degrees. Summers are hot, with temperatures often exceeding 40 degrees. - Learn More/See Wines
François de Nicolay
Our philosophy is a holistic respect for life that translates to balanced, healthy grapes with the capacity to produce vibrant, pure and seductive wines, so in 2005 we completely converted to biodynamic farming. We applied for certification with EcoCert and Demeter, which we received in 2011. The longer we continue farming in this way, we can see the difference in the vines. They grow differently; they seem more alive and healthy, and at harvest they are better balanced between acidity and aromas. - Learn More/See Wines

Winemaker Toby Gillman discovered his passion for wine many years ago as a student, while pitching in voluntarily at a vineyard. In fact, he spent his first student allowance on a bottle of Matakana wine. Toby soon fell in love with the idea of making wine himself. He and his father John volunteered their labour at New Zealand’s iconic Providence vineyard. For the next decade, they spent their weekends receiving practical experience by day and educating their palates by night, when the winemaker would repay their labour with excellent dinners and bottles of wine from his cellar of rare French wines. - Learn More/See Wines
Gil Family Estates
Since 1916, when Juan Gil Jiménez had the winery built, only one clear idea has moved the following generations in charge of the same - Doing a good job and being prideful of the Juan Gil name and commercial trademark. Juan Gil Guerrero, a founder’s son, firstly, and then his grandson Juan Gil González, improved and consolidated the winery, applied the traditional knowledge of their job transmitted from parents to children. Nowadays, the fourth generation, linking the tradition with the technical revolution, is the one that enjoys the result of the work done by the predecessors. - Learn More/See Wines

Organised Chaos is so much more than just a wine label to me. It's kids, friends, family, work, play. It’s the highs and the lows, the good and the not so good. It’s Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. It’s growing grapes, it’s making wine, it’s working hard. It’s life. These wines are a celebration of the chaos that is, and a tip of the cap to the chaos that was. They are a reflection of the moments, inspirations and influences, of my journey throughout the world of winegrowing, organised into my personal expression of the wines that Hawke's Bay does best. Working with growers that share my passion and respect for the land, the Organised Chaos wines are a fresh, vibrant, and textural expression of a modern day Hawke’s Bay. #jointhechaos - Learn More/See Wines
