By JESSICA MADDOCK
A legend of New Zealand music,
Wayne Mason, will perform a free
concert near Hawea on Good Friday
with fellow musician Clinton
Mason wrote Nature, which was
voted the number one song in the
past 75 years by the Australian
Performing Right Association
(APRA) in 2001. He was a founding
member of some of the country's
most successful bands, including
The Fourmyula and The Warratahs.
Brown was also a member of The
Warratahs and wrote many of their
early songs, including their first hit
Hands of My Heart.
The house concert will be held at the
Nook Road Nursery, home of local
singer and songwriter Anna van
''House concerts are a very special
occasion where you really are
engaging up close with your
audience . . . a fantastic environment
for a songwriter.''
Mason and Brown will also play at
other intimate venues in Central
Otago and Southland during their
Summer Scenic Tour, including at
The Whistling Frog in the Catlins,
the Mataura Returned Services
Association and another house
concert in Invercargill.

peer support counsellors Sarah Manning, left, with daughter Sophia, six months, and Suzy Wood, both from

who graduated from the course at a ceremony in Cromwell on Thursday. The women have spent six weeks
training through the programme, funded by the Southern PHO, and will volunteer their time to help and
support both new and experienced mothers to breastfeed. The peer counsellor programme has been running
since 2009 and there are peer support counsellors in Wanaka, Alexandra, Hawea Flat, Cromwell, Clyde,
Ranfurly and in the Wakatipu region.

Complexity extends to stemware
Fit for purpose: Glass guru Georg
Riedel in action in Queenstown.
By JOHN EDENS
The glassware standard in New
Zealand restaurants and bars
was a ''scandal,'' a leading
Austrian guru told industry
Georg Riedel presented a
seminar on taste difference
using varietal-specific glasses
for pinot noir, cabernet and
other reds at a Jacks Pt
clubhouse event last week.
The Riedel family company was
started in 1756.
He told restaurateurs, bar
managers and industry
representatives that he wanted
to complicate their wine-
Tasting the same wine from the
three varietal-specific glasses
produced different ''flavour
He said it was simple physics
with the pinot noir glass, for
example, delivering a heady
bouquet via the large bowl and
wine to the tip of the tongue
before the entire palate.
But there are those who say the
claim by high-end glass
manufacturers that the vessel
makes a difference is scientific
Regardless, it was fun supping
great wine from great glasses,
which cost $60-$120 each for the
Vinum wine range and $400 for
a martini glass.
