  • Xmas Degustation with
    Mt Difficulty Wines*

    Dec 2016
    - 7pm -

    Christmas is coming, and so is our epic annual Mt Difficulty Xmas Degustation Dinner* on Wednesday, 21 December. Attaining legendary status on the Christchurch dining scene, this wine-matched gastronomic odyssey brilliantly marries five courses (plus a refreshing intermezzo) of executive chef Fred Wiesehutter’s finest culinary creations to a flight of Mt Difficulty’s premium Central Otago wines – expect to sip on Bannockburn Rose, Bannockburn Pinot Noir Rosé 2016 and other exciting drops including the incredibly rare Inspiration Cuvee Pinot Noir 2013, which was specially-created to present to New Zealand medal winners at Rio 2016 and is unavailable in the market – and all for just $125 per person! What’s more, the evening’s festivities will be presented by Mt Difficulty wine guru/chef/ National Sales Manager Scott Wilson, who will deliver a mini master-class discussing each wine and its pairing, the vineyard, and all things viticulture. A regular sell-out and limited to just 60 guests, this night out is perfect as your corporate finale to the Christmas season, a festive catch-up with friends, or just an opulent night out for two.
