Food & Wine Weekend with Chef Martin Bosley and Brian Bicknell of Mahi Winery at Poronui Lodge

For a truly gastronomic experience, join us at Poronui Lodge for our Food & Wine Weekend with Chef Martin Bosley and Brian Bicknell of Mahi Winery Friday 25th to Sunday 27th October 2019.

Martin’s menu promises to be exciting and innovative with wonderful flavours, paired perfectly with delicious Mahi wines.

As one of New Zealand’s finest chefs, Martin Bosley fosters a food philosophy inspired by the wealth of great local ingredients available in our beautiful country. He is well known for being able to present the New Zealand culture on a plate filled with diverse flavours and stellar produce.
The idea behind Mahi is to respect and promote the individuality of the various vineyards, their soils and their aspects. All of the vines have been low cropped, hand-picked and fermented in the winery with as little intervention as possible.

During the weekend get to know your expert hosts at an informal Friday night dinner, test your palate with a special wine blending challenge with Brian Saturday before the Gala dinner and watch the fun and friendly collaboration of two incredible hosts and big players in New Zealand’s Wine and Cuisine industry. All hosted in one of New Zealand’s finest cellars… This fun and educational weekend is not to be missed.

Food & Wine Weekend includes

Two nights accommodation at the Lodge, meet and greet dinner on Friday night with Martin and Brian, picnic lunch at Safari Camp on Saturday or choose a guided activity (additional cost), roll up your sleeves with Martin prepping Saturday afternoon or join the blending masterclass with Brian, formal degustation dinner on the evening with wine pairing from Mahi wines and a relaxed Sunday morning brunch.
