Corbans Winery and the Temperance Movement
Sharon Alexander, a fourth generation Corban will share the challenges that her vintner family faced during the prohibition era in the early 1900s.
Though much of West Auckland was a dry area including the site of the Corbans Winery, the family were able to produce wine but not sell or distribute on the premises. In response they built a brick depot over the railway line, although a few hundred metres away, this was outside the prohibited area. The Wine Depot has been a loved and visible heritage landmark on Great North Road.
Celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the Corban family homestead and take a tour of the heritage buildings, see winemaking relics and photos from the prohibition era.
Part of Auckland Heritage Festival 2023.
