The Kōparepare range of wines are produced and bottled by Whitehaven as a means of directly supporting LegaSea. For every bottle sold a donation of at least NZD$1 is donated back to LegaSea, to fund their work. In 2019 Whitehaven kicked things off with a NZD$25,000 contribution (which will be our minimum contribution for the next three years). Over time, and as sales grow, our contribution will increase.
Kōparepare (pronounced kaw-pardy-pardy) is Maori for gift or contribution…and this is our gift to future generations, our contribution to protecting New Zealand’s inshore fisheries.
