The idea for providing the personalised wine label product came after the owner Bart Isbey met a Golden Oldies Rugby Team member that funded travel by selling its own special edition port. Bart decided to use his extensive business experience to provide a service to his past business colleagues by offering personalised wine.
Bart has seen a huge change over the years in terms of the quality of wines being produced, especially in latter years where the quality is un-surpassed. The Oak & Whale Personalised Wines uses only top wines, at all budget levels from well known and respected wineries and vineyards from throughout New Zealand.
We work with some of New Zealand’s leading wineries including Trinity Hill, Peregrine, Babich, Coopers Creek, and Rongopai Wines. Our gourmet food products for our wooden hamper and gift boxes are supplied from a selection of 80 gourmet premium New Zealand made food lines.
Bart is extremely pleased to offer Matakana Olive Oil as part of the newly expanded range of products. The Oak & Whale are the only company offering this boutique and delicious Olive Oil with a personalised label.

What our Customers Say…
“Very happy with the service and product quality provided by Oak and Whale for our clients Christmas gifts in 2013. I’d recommend this corporate gift option to other organisations looking for a hassle free, top quality option.” – Grant Whisker, Transport & General Engineering Company Ltd
“Bart, many thanks again for the effort you put into getting our pre Christmas orders completed efficiently and delivered on time. The various labels were very effectively designed and our respective clients were thrilled with the results. It goes without saying..if they’re pleased, so are we. We look forward to working with you again very soon.” – Ross Buxton, BRANDMARQUE Limited
“In late October we decided to get some branded wine down for corporate clients for Christmas from Oak and Whale. The wines we chose from were well known brands and there were a great variety to choose from. Once we decided on how many cases, the designer made up a variety of options for how our label would look using our logo colours and different messages. It was quick and easy, so we just had to decide which one we liked best. Once paid for the wine order arrived within a week. Very fast and efficient service. The end product was professional and styley. We also like that the wine information is also on the label to show it is a good brand. Thank you to all the team at Oak and Whale!” – Nikki Nobilo, Village Accommodation Group
“This was our first time we had ordered a product with Oak & Whale. Ordering from the website was simple and fuss free. We placed a Christmas order (quite late in the year) for the Babich Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc and received our order promptly. This wine is a great celebration wine and was well received by clients and staff. I would recommend Oak and Whale personalised products just on their service alone.” – Paula Gibson, Waikato Cranes / Auckland Cranes
