Sip, Savour, Cycle at New Zealand's Original Bunch Ride. The award winning Whitehaven Graperide is the largest and

most popular cycling even in the South Island set in the heart of the world renowned wine growing region of

Marlborough. It starts and finishes at the Vines Village on Rapaura Road and during the 101km loop takes in some of

New Zealand's most stunning scenery. Leslie & O'Donnell Ltd have been a sponsor since it started in 2006 and

several team members have participated in this awesome event over the years. Graperide Website

FINS UP!! The Mighty Tasman Makos!

We are proud supporters of the Tasman Rugby Team and you will often hear some very loud Leslie & O'Donnell Team

members on the side-line cheering our team on.

We are proud sponsors of the Corteva Marlborough Young Viticulturist of the year competition and the 

Tonnellerie de Mercurey New Zealand Young Winemaker competition both held annually in Marlborough.

This showcases local contestants from Marlborough wine companies competing against each other in a

variety of disciplines associated with our wine industry.
