ON-BOARD WITH EMIRATES TEAM NZ
PARTNERS IN DEFENCE OF THE AMERICA'S CUP
As exclusive wine supplier to Emirates Team New Zealand, we’re proud to be supporting the team as they chart a course to the defence of the 36th America’s Cup in 2021.
"As a brand who looks to do things differently and embraces forward-thinking, we see a strong link between ourselves and Emirates Team New Zealand. We are excited to be able to support Emirates Team New Zealand as they defend their title at America’s Cup 2021.” - Patrick Materman, Brancott Estate Winemaker (and keen amateur sailor)
ONE BOAT, ONE TEAM & THREE LIMITED-EDITION LABELS
To celebrate our partnership with Emirates Team New Zealand, we’ve created three limited-edition bottles, each reflecting a key area required for success on the water.
The three bottle labels use international maritime signal flags to give New Zealander’s a deeper understanding of the different roles needed to make the boat go faster and drive the team to victory in the 2021 America’s Cup – chase winds, drive speed, and forge power. Each label is signed by three of the Emirates Team New Zealand team members whose roles help the team achieve success in the depicted area, whether on the boat or behind the scenes.
