News & Events


Such an incredibly special weekend spent in breathtaking surroundings hunting and fishing, with great company, exceptional food from Martin Bosley and some of our Mahi wines – this time at Poronui is always one of my favourite events of the year. The Food and Wine Weekend is on from 27th – 29th October 2017 and below is a little more information about the event and how to book.

Join Martin Bosley, one of New Zealand’s most awarded chefs, and Brian Bicknell of Mahi Wines for a memorable food and wine experience.

Martin Bosley is one of New Zealand’s most awarded chefs. Join him for a degustation gala dinner in Poronui’s atmospheric wine cellar with wine matches by Brian Bicknell of Mahi Winery. Martin and Brian will co-host the weekend, from dinner on Friday night to brunch on Sunday.

Brian’s passion for wine and wine-making is infectious and he is very generous in sharing his knowledge. On Saturday you will have the opportunity to spend time discovering a bit more about winemaking, what makes a region different and also trying your hand, or palate, at blending the ultimate wine.

Martin will share his masterful and internationally acclaimed style and join the guests after dinner.

Cost $2,300 per couple

Includes two night double accommodation, casual dinner on Friday night, country breakfast, light lunch, and degustation Gala dinner in the wine cellar with wines to match on Saturday, brunch on Sunday, pre-dinner drinks, house wine and beer and wine blending with the wine maker on Saturday afternoon.
