Crowdblend 2019

CROWD BLENDTM is back again this year but with a twist! We thought it was time to make a little mischief and do something to test every type of wine lover.

Your challenge, as Winemaker this year is to create your own ideal blend of our three base wines. What's the catch you ask? We aren't going to tell you what varietals make up the base wines as frankly we don't know ourselves. Our head wine-maker Pete Turn er has the contents under lock and key so we will be tasting and blending right alongside you.

So, how about having a crack at creating your own signature white blend? With a little winemaking mischief, a little bit of this and little bit of that, you can create a beautifully balanced, original blend that could just set the world on fire.


Everyone who registers will not only be credited on the bottle but will also receive a 750ml bottle of the winning Rosé at the end, just to say thanks for all the hard work.

If you are keen to take part just follow these easy steps.


Everyone who registers will receive a blending pack of four 375ml bottles of different wines and at the end of the campaign, a limited-edition bottle of the winning White Mischief blend with the names of all who participated. Click here to register.


Channel your inner winemaker - smell, taste and mix it up to create your perfect blend.


Since we will also be in the dark, we want to hear your thoughts at what varietals could make up the different base wines.


Submit your entry by posting a pic on one of your social media accounts with the bottle & blending card and tag @the_hunting_lodge and add #crowdblend to go in the draw to win the grand prize!

The winner will not only have their chosen name as the limited edition 2019 White Mischief Crowdblend. They will also enjoy a VIP experience at The Hunting Lodge for them and a plus one. This includes the use of a Land Rover vehicle to use to get from a central address in Auckland, out to your accomomodation at the gorgeous Vineyard Cottages and a special wine tasting at our Cellar Door & Lawn Bar followed by a meal at our Restaurant. 

Submit your blend by the 16th of September 2019 - any entries after this date will not be eligible


Make sure you follow us on our social channels to stay in the loop on the latest entries from your fellow winemakers while you wait on your bottle of the Ultimate White Mischief to arrive.


Winner will be announced on Monday the 26th of September 2019.

*CROWD BLENDTM is only available to New Zealand residents aged over 18 years and is limited to one registration per person.
