Hosted by the owners of Misha’s Vineyard, Andy and Misha Wilkinson, along with their renowned winemaker Olly Masters, guests can look forward to trying some of New Zealand’s most acclaimed wines with vintages specially selected from the cellar. With a ‘no compromise’ philosophy, the Wilkinsons spent two years to find the ideal site to establish the vineyard. A spectacular site was found on dramatic lakefront terraces of Bendigo station, a high-country sheep station in the Central Otago region of New Zealand. It is one of the finest regions in the world to grow cool climate grapes; most particularly Pinot Noir.
Patrons will delight in tasting fresh, regionally sourced food by True South’s award-winning executive chef Ben Batterbury. Ben’s culinary style is known to embody a sense of excitement and adventure while remaining sophisticated and visually stunning. It is no surprise he has gained international recognition and won several awards including most recently, HM Magazine’s Award for Hotel Chef of the Year 2017 (Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific).
True South’s seasonal produce is sourced from high quality suppliers south of Christchurch, which assures freshness and quality control while reducing food miles and encouraging sustainable practices. This dinner is part of an ongoing culinary series of events.
