  • Introducing the Belgian Beer Café Torenhof Winemakers’ Dinner Series


    Down at The ‘Hof we know you love beer, but we also know you love a good wine and food match too, which is why we’re stoked to be able to bring you the Belgian Beer Café Torenhof’s Winemakers’ Dinner Series*.

    Each of the delectable dining experiences over the following four months will combine a specially-created four-course menu perfectly paired to a flight of fantastic wines from some of the country’s best wineries – including national faves Pegasus Bay Winery and Wither Hills – for just $85 per person (or $75 earlybird).

    Our awesome executive chef Friedrich (or Fred to our regulars) will be creating unique and sensational hearty, seasonal Euro-influenced dishes with a Kiwi twist and expertly matched to each signature wine presented, while a representative from each of the winemakers will talk guests through each wine and course match, provide tasting notes and answer any questions.
