Lo­cated in the iconic Roth­mans Fac­tory in Napier's Ahuriri district, is The Ur­ban Win­ery, owned by Tony Bish and his wife Kar­ryn. This is Tony's solo project, and markedly dif­fer­ent to his role as chief wine­maker for Sa­cred Hill Wines. The win­ery is geared to­wards Tony's un­quench­able love of chardon­nay and built around his unique “con­crete egg” fer­menters, a col­lec­tion of oak bar­rels and the most unique and stun­ning bar­rel in the world – a Taransaud “Ovum”. The enor­mous, egg-shaped bar­rel made from pure French oak is the only one of its kind in the coun­try and one of only a few any­where in the world. Tony be­lieves the con­vec­tion cur­rents within these ovoid­shaped ves­sels create a rich, creamy tex­ture and unique taste in chardon­nay. En­joy wine tast­ing, ta­pas-style food and a chardon­nay ed­u­ca­tion like no other.
