If you like wine and making a difference, you’ve likely already heard of North Canterbury wine, 27seconds.

Q&A with Pete and Alanna Chapman

Why North Canterbury? It’s where our family vineyard, Terrace Edge is located. Even if we didn’t have the family vineyard in North Canterbury, we’d choose up this way! The community, the beauty, the mountains and the growing conditions make brilliant wine.

What’s your favourite thing to do in North Canterbury? A drive in the country, stopping to explore the rivers, swimming holes and beaches. With some brown paper packages from The Paris Bakery.

Name your top three North Canterbury brands (other than your own!): The Norwester Café, Greystone and Terrace Edge. These three brands have been really generous in helping our brand: Greystone makes our wine at a discount so we can give more to the cause. Terrace Edge (aka. Mum and Dad) – without them, we couldn’t have done it. And the Norwester Café has provided coffee and the best buttermilk date scones for our picking day morning tea.
