Kōparepare is produced and bottled by Whitehaven, and for every bottle sold we donate to LegaSea, a non-profit organisation that works tirelessly to protect and restore New Zealand’s coastal fisheries. Whitehaven has always had a connection to the sea, and it is through its Platinum Partnership with LegaSea that Whitehaven can play a role in helping to restore oceans for the enjoyment of communities and future generations.
In 2020 Samantha, daughter of Whitehaven co-founders Sue and the late Greg White, returned to the family business in Marlborough. Having spent the first six months of her life on board the yacht in which her parents navigated the Pacific, Samantha has an inherent passion for the restoration of New Zealand’s natural resources. It is this legacy that has seen Samantha take on the important role of ambassador to the Kōparepare range, and ensuring we work together to restore oceans.
We are genuinely excited about the relaunch of this range of wines. So much so, that during the week of 19 October Whitehaven will donate 100% of the revenue from the first 125 cases sold online, directly to LegaSea. For every bottle after that we will donate $1 to the cause.
It is our wish to create a community of people who want to make a difference, people who want to join us in helping to restore our oceans.
