Brewery notes
"This is the first year in ages since we have done a fresh hop beer.

How come it's been so long? Well in the past we had been getting our hops via road freight from Nelson which in some cases with delays it can take up to seven days before you can get them into the brew. This can be very detrimental to the intense aroma of the fresh hops. As you would imagine once a flower is picked it quickly deteriorates and ultimately starts to compost. So the faster you get it from the farm to the brewery then the better the beer will be. The part we are trying to preserve and take advantage of is incredible aromatic volatiles of the hop flower. So this year we did everything we could to get the hops from the farm in the best condition possible.

The hops were picked on Monday15th, delivered to NZ Hops and cooled down overnight. This slows down the deterioration process. Then the next morning they were picked up around 8am and sent to Nelson airport. Then put on an Air NZ flight to Auckland where Luke and Sten took a couple of cars to Auckland Airport to pick them up and drive them straight to the brewery. They smelt amazing, and were still cold from the chiller at NZ Hops in Nelson. Once at the brewery they were added straight to the brew to give us the maximum freshness and massiveness of aroma. Farm to brew in under 24 hours. It cost alot, but we wanted to give you the best experience we possibly could.

Why now? There is a new and exciting hop varieties that has recently been released called Nectaron (The "Ron" part is a hat tip to the legendary hop breeder Dr Ron Beatson for his significant contribution to the breeding of this hop variety as well as his incredible contribution to not only the hop breeding programme in NZ but also the general hop industry on the planet). Nectaron delivers the incredible hop characters of tropical fruits and spiciness. As usual we have presented these special hops in a trademark IPA style."

  • 5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.

    5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!

    5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

    5 star review  I've just ordered online for a friend in another city and I was impressed with the ease of use on the website. Wines are listed with excellent information on tasting notes and professional reviews, as well as being well categorised for easy search. I also called the store with a query about ordering online and they were so incredibly helpful and friendly on the phone. Highly recommend
