WINEMAKER’S DINNER AT AVIDA IN WELLINGTON

It is always a highlight on the calendar when I get to pair up with a great restaurant like Avida, alongside an old friend such as Stephen Morris, to host a winemaker’s dinner. However, the night of Saturday 12th November is particularly special as all proceeds will go to the Karen Louisa Foundation. An incredibly deserving cause, the Karen Louisa Foundation is a registered charitable trust which honours the life and aspirations of the late Karen Louisa Hunter. Established to generate funding and provide direct assistance by various means, the Karen Louisa Foundation supports patients with secondary breast cancer in New Zealand. SATURDAY 12TH NOVEMBER  |  AVIDA  |  7.00PM  |  TICKETS $100 – ALL PROCEEDS TO THE KAREN LOUISA FOUNDATION Events hosted for the Karen Louisa Foundation are centred on Wellington’s vibrant food and dining culture and this one is no different. The night will take place at Avida Bar located near Wellington’s Queen’s Wharf. It will be a night of great food, wine and companionship. I would like to invite you to join us and show support for the Karen Louisa Foundation. Please enquire about bookings from reservations@avidabar.co.nz We hope…

JOIN US FOR VINTAGE IN 2014!

CALLING ALL NZ RESTAURATEURS… WANT TO EXPERIENCE VINTAGE AT MAHI FIRST HAND? Well why not join us! We have started something of a tradition where we invite a couple of hospitality people to Marlborough each year to share the experience of vintage, so you get to know the smells, feel and fun that is harvest time at Mahi. You will get behind the scenes experience, from hand picking and sorting, to indigenous yeast ferments, whole cluster pressing and barrel work. Flex your muscles with some hand plunging of our Pinot Noir ferments (not for the faint hearted). Though it’s not all hard work and no play, at the end of the day we all sit down together to a nice meal and a few bottles of wine and relax by the fire. We would love to have more people down but cannot afford it, in order to decide on whom, we ask that you answer a simple question:   When was Mahi’s first vintage and what wine was made?   Check out our website – www.mahiwine.co.nz to find the answer.…
