Ambitious projects planned for winery (NZ)
The weather at South Wairarapa’s windswept Ocean Beach was looking increasingly stormy, but Bill Foley didn’t mind. “I love tough weather,” the US billionaire said. About 120 guests at his exclusive lodge Wharekauhau didn’t mind too much, either. They were invited to lunch on Saturday as former shareholders and guests of Te Kairanga, the Martinborough winery he bought last year. Foley thanked them, then revealed how his New Zealand company was launching the Wharekauhau Wine and Food Society, reports The Dominion Post.
