Louis Vavasour is a Marlborough boy with a proud family tradition of making top-notch wines. Since he set up the Awatere River Wine Company (ARWC) in 2007, it's gone from strength to strength, winning awards and fans galore.
When we met Louis and heard how hard it was for him to grow his business, we were inspired to set up the Tahi fund.
Before Tahi, Louis worried about being able to afford enough high-quality grapes and the best equipment to continue making first-class wines. Now, he buys premium grapes and can make more exceptional wines in a huge, cutting-edge winery.
Booster Tahi became partners with the Awatere River Wine Company in April 2017.
