Our Wines

Buzz A Basket is licensed to sell alcohol.    We carry a small selection of wines and craft beers for our gift baskets but if customers request liqueurs, spirits and wines not in stock we can source them for you.      
After a lot of tasting (work related you understand), attending trade shows and spending a lot of time talking to specialists in the wine industry we are pleased to offer wines from Matahiwi vineyard in Wairarapa.  Like us, Matahiwi is a small family owned business focussed on quality and customer service.   We hope you enjoy their wines.
