Whitehaven places great importance on community, and we are passionate about causes that support the protection of New Zealand’s natural resources. Enter LegaSea, a not for profit organisation campaigning to protect and preserve New Zealand’s coastal fisheries.  When the opportunity arose to support the LegaSea cause Whitehaven jumped at the chance.  It wasn’t long before the opportunity arose to make an even greater difference. So, in 2019 Whitehaven became a proud Platinum partner to LegaSea.

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 is Maori for gift or contribution…and this is our gift to future generations, our contribution to protecting New Zealand’s coastal fisheries. 

Enjoying these wines also enables you to celebrate and embrace this partnership and, in the process, add your contribution to its success.
