Astrolabe Wine on Rena

By October 12, 2011No Comments

Astrolabe owner and winemaker has confirmed that there were three containers of his wine on board the ‘Rena’ caught up on Astrolabe Reef off the Port of Tauranga. The stock was sold F.O.B. so the loss will be to the importing agents account, but no doubt the losses are greater than the cost of the wine. The insurance claim process will be involved and take some time to settle. To ensure continuity of Astrolabe wine in the European market, Simon has taken steps to get more wine on the water to arrive there in time for the important Christmas sales. www.astrolabewines.co.nz
