Wine & music define Taupo Lodge Tauhara Sunrise

Boutique lodge Tauhara Sunrise, which offers spectacular views over Lake Taupo in the centre of New Zealand's North Island, offers a strong focus on New Zealand wines and New Zealand music.

"One of my favorite pasttimes is discovering new wines, particularly from boutique wineries around NZ," says Rob. "Our cellar features Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir from several regions including Central Otago, Syrah and Chardonnay from Hawkes Bay, Pinot Gris from Marlborough and Central Otago, and bordeaux-style blends from Hawkes Bay. We also special order wines to meet any unique requirements of our guests," says Rob.

Another passion is music. Rob and Becky are partners in a concert promotion business called 41Above - www.41above.co.nz - which brings singer/songwriters to Taupo and also promotes larger concerts at lakeside venues. Through this business, Rob & Becky have become acquainted with many of NZ's top musicians and Tauhara Sunrise features music from many of these musicians. Rob's music collection is diverse, covering classical, jazz, pop, rock, country, blues and adult alternative genres.

If you're into wine & music and looking for luxury boutique accommodation in Taupo, consider Tauhara Sunrise. You can even specify your pre-dinner drink preferences and music preferences during the booking process.
