Birdwoods South Gallery is preparing for its upcoming exhibition at Wet Jacket Winery.
We are super-excited to be working on this collaboration with the folks at Wet Jacket Winery. The Wet Jacket brand is a unique concept reverencing the history of farming in Central Otago and celebrating the modern wine industry of today.
Their cellar door is locate in the Woolshed at Bendemeer, which is very much a representation of the Wet Jacket brand. With the Woolshed's historical significance to the Wakitipu Basin and the regions farming history, the result is a perfect fit of old and new.
To elaborate, the industry of wine making and grape growing are a more recent but further extension of farming in Central Otago - where today we see those sheep stations of the past replaced by vineyards. The Woolshed and Wet Jacket are a unique synergy, sharing the history of farming with winemaking in one interesting and exceptional venue.
