Charles and Camilla make their own wine in New Zealand

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall sampled some of New Zealand’s produce during the first day of their visit to the country – creating and sampling their own wine blend.

Charles and Camilla, under the watch of winemaker Pete Turner, sampled riesling, pinot gris and albarino grapes at the Hunting Lodge Vineyard in the Waimauku region, near Auckland.

Rain was falling heavily on the 80-hectare site meaning the chance to see the grapes up close was not possible, but the pair shared laughs and smiles indoors as they mixed the white wines to taste.
