Local Event Premier Host
Join us in Needham this Saturday, March 25th, from 1-4 PM as we welcome Nick Kuekenmeester from Glaetzer and Heartland Wines! He will be pouring these wines from his stunning portfolio:

Nick is the managing director and co-owner of Heartland Wines (Langhorne Creek) and the general manager and sales manager for Glaetzer Wines (Barossa Valley). He holds a Diploma of Wine from the Wine and Spirit Education Trust and is an accredited diploma lecturer for the Wine and Spirit Education Trust. He has been in the wine industry for over 20 years.
Nick began his wine career by lugging wooden cartons around the cellar of a fancy wine merchant on the Old Brompton Road in London. In his first week, he smashed six bottles of 1996 Smith Haut Lafitte. After this inauspicious beginning, he spent a further six years in the UK wine retail sector, where he met with some of the most influential people in the wine world. He was lucky enough to work for Mike and Liz Berry MW at La Vigneronne, with James Handford MW at Handford Wines, and to run the wine department for Harvey Nichols in Knightsbridge, London.
After a stint running the private client department for Lifford Wine Agency in Toronto, Canada, Nick returned to his homeland and for the past decade has worked in his current roles spreading the word about Australia's finest wines.
We will see you this Saturday in Needham!
