Wayne has been appointed CEO of Ka Tahi because Danny and Amal think he consumes more than his fair share of the wine. Wayne has enjoyed working in banking and investment, farming, packaged food, and fast food, but says his career is now terminal at wine.
He believes that Hawke’s Bay has everything to offer wine drinkers thanks to great resources and a wealth of varied and outstanding terroir. He wants Ka Tahi to be a reflection of the potential that Hawke’s Bay presents to the world as a fountain of great wines.
Rod is the CEO of Hawke’s Bay Wine Investments.
As a high achieving winemaker and passionate believer in the greatness of Hawke’s Bay wine, Rod has a special place in his heart for Ka Tahi.
He oversees the winemaking and ensures that the considerable skills of the HBWC team are applied liberally to its creations.
