Koparepare Sauvignon Blanc represents everything that Marlborough's most popular wine is all about; it's fresh, it's crisp. it's the very definition of fruit salad in a glass, and more; it's a gorgeous bright white wine made to honour the marine environment, hence the name, Koparepare. A portion of the sale of every bottle of Koparepare wines goes to support LegaSea, which is a not for profit organisation set up by the New Zealand Sport Fishing Council in 2012. LegaSea's aim is to raise awareness of the marine environment and inspire public support.
Whitehaven Wines was founded by Greg and Sue White in 1994 after they sailed into the Marlborough Sounds to shelter from a storm in the early 1990s and fell for the natural beauty of the region and the haven it provided. So they decided to take the next natural step - set up a winery back on dry land, naming it, naturally enough, Whitehaven.
