Taste of the Alps
Award - Winning
A multi award winner artisan producer, located in beautiful Wanaka New Zealand, Taste of the Alps specialises in hand-made small batch preserves. Its boutique range is inspired by the alpine climate and abundant seasonal offerings Central Otago is renowned for.
Hello....My name is Tineke-Maree Sutton, I am the owner/ operator of Taste of the Alps. I love this region, each new season is a moment of excitement as the Central Otago fruit - natures confectionary - ripens and harvest begins. I am so lucky to be surrounded by the worlds finest cherries, sweet Sundrop, Clutha Gold apricots, Premium Pinot Noir grapes and succulent black doris plums.
These hand picked sustainable fruits are the natural ingredients in my glass jars. The idea for Taste of the Alps came about while I was working as a Chef at a Vineyard in Cromwell. I was inspired to create my own range, preserving the best Central Otago has to offer.
Taste of the Alps preserves appeals to everyone, from a loyal buying their weekly fix, to a visitor wanting to indulge in a delicious little reminder of their stay here in Wanaka.
Share a taste of Central Otago with family and friends, shipping is available through out New Zealand.

Cuisine editor Kelli Brett says New Zealand’s artisan producers truly deserve our support. “Their products are often made by hand and they don’t usually have access to mass-production methods. It’s a risk and a challenge to produce these products on such a small scale and this award category helps highlight and recognise their outstanding work.” '
