te Pa Wines sponsors Tasman Rugby Union.

Tasman Rugby Union is pleased to announce that te Pa Wines has signed to be the Union’s Wine Sponsor for 2020.

te Pa produces award-winning and sustainably-grown wines from the iconic Marlborough wine region. The te Pa, Pa Road, Koha and Montford Estate wines they produce are available nationwide and internationally.

Haysley MacDonald, owner and founder of te Pa Wines, was born and bred on the Wairau Bar. His family lineage goes back over 800 years to some of the earliest Maori arrivals to New Zealand.

Haysley is passionate about his region, wine making and rugby. These three passions made the decision to get involved in supporting the TRU and the Tasman Mako teams an easy one.

TRU CEO Tony Lewis said “Viticulture, especially in Marlborough, is a major economic driver in Te Tau Ihu and for te Pa Wines to be a major commercial supporter of rugby in the region is particularly pleasing. We welcome their involvement in our game and our Union”.

According to TRU Brand Ambassador Graeme Taylor, finding a Marlborough wine company to sponsor rugby was challenging but a perfect match has been found. “Haysley MacDonald and his family and staff are proud Marlburians who recognise the role rugby plays in the community bringing people together, as enjoying wine does also”.

te Pa will have wines available by the glass at all Blenheim and Nelson home games, including their award-winning te Pa Sauvignon Blanc and Pa Road Pinot Noir. Mako fans can also purchase wine by the case to enjoy at home, through te Pa’s website. Use the promotion code MAKO2020 for a 15% discount on all wines. Shipping included for Marlborough-Tasman region.
