Who are we?

Tom
“I have spent the past decade in a love affair with wine. It began while serving over 300 different wines in an Italian wine bar in Edinburgh, Scotland and continued through the hands-on experience of making wines in the cellars of great Auckland and Martinborough wineries. I’ve sold wines across Asia and managed to see a little of the vast world of wine throughout my travels. However, wine is a neverending experience with new wines constantly popping up from unique places. I intend to continue the journey and hopefully bring some of you along for the ride. Wine shouldn’t be difficult; hopefully this site makes it easy.”
Tom Howard tom@onvine.co.nzTom Howard, AIWS, has been in the wine and hospitality industries for his entire working career: selling, serving and making wine. Tom is now an Associate of the Institute of Wines & Spirits after completing his Diploma of Wines and Spirits in 2010.

“My love for wine began when I was a waitress during my university days, and that's where I first developed a taste for my one true love, champagne. It was there I developed an understanding about food and wine together, and was always tasting, sniffing, and trying to learn as much as possible. Since becoming a food writer I get to write and learn about wine by default, and for that I count myself lucky. With Onvine, I love that it's passive education - well-selected wines you can taste and learn about and enjoy in the comfort of your own home. ”

Onvine has come about from a desire to provide easy access to great wines. The world of wine is huge and varied; we often miss the opportunity to taste many great wines either because they are difficult to access or because they are too obscure to recognise.

Onvine will give you the opportunity to experience great wines from across the world; some you will have never heard of and some may not be quite your cup of tea but you’ll be able to enjoy trying them, rating them and learning more about wine along the way.

Onvine.co.nz is owned and operated by Tom Howard, a proud Kiwi who has a strong passion for the wine industry and the stories behind each wine. Tom will be personally selecting the wines of each themed monthly collection. However, from time to time, special guests will be invited to create their own collections, adding some unique perspectives to the experience. The idea of Onvine’s collections is to offer you a new viewpoint on wine every month and to build a strong foundation from which to develop a genuine knowledge, understanding and appreciation for the wines that so many of us enjoy.

Signing in to Onvine gives you access to your own personalised site. From your Dashboard you will be free to rate the wines for your own personal reference, building a catalogue that will help you to recall the memorable wines from months or even years past.

Know your wine

Every collection will be accompanied by notes that will provide you with a little more information on the particulars of each wine and interesting tidbits on what makes the wine so special. We provide you with the basics and then let you form your own opinion, adding your own notes on first impressions or personal judgements.

Collection Notes

After a few months of overseas
exposure it's time to come home and check out some exciting new wines from around the country. We’ve put together a tasty mix with interesting varieties in the form of Pinot Blanc and Lagrein, an obscure Italian red that’s being experimented with in vineyards down under. The results so far look good, we reckon!
Also featuring this month are two wines from Ant McKenzie’s Theory & Practice label. Ant has been a successful winemaker and consulting winemaker across the country for years and this is a great outlet for him to put his theories into practice!
The collection is full of wines from brands reasonably new to the scene but sure to make an impact. Our feature wine is a fresh look for Mt Edward’s second label. Gone is the Wanaka Road brand, replaced with TED. Along with that they have released Pinot Blanc at this level for the first time and we are thankful for that. It’s delicious and a perfect wine to bring in the warm weather that’s just around the corner!
