Description

Taumata is the shortened form of the longest place name in the world – a hill near Porangahau, south of Waipukurau in southern Hawke’s Bay.

At 85 characters we reckon it’s also the longest wine name in the world: in full and in Maori it is -Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukakapikimaungahoronukupokaiwhenuakitanatahu

Its name translates into English as “the place where Tamatea, the man with the big knees, who slid, climbed and swallowed mountains, known as ‘landeater’, played his flute to his loved one.

If you want to try and pronounce it:- “Tow-ma-ta-fa-ka-ta-ni-ha-na-kor-o-or-ta-ma-te-a-tu-ree-pu-kapi-ki-mong-a-ho-ro-nu-ku-po-ka-ee-fen-u-aki-ta-na-ta-hu”
