MAHI WINEMAKER’S DINNER @ VERBENA (AKL)

Mahi Winemaker’s Dinner @ Verbena Bar & Bistro

Wednesday 17th October, 2012

 

Looking forward to getting back to Auckland and while I am there I will be hosting a winemaker’s dinner at Verbena  Restaurant.   Head chef Sean Thompson will be preparing a 6 course degustation menu matched to our wines. Both Sean and I will chat about the wine and food respectively.  Can’t wait to see what he has in store for the evening, Sean’s food is always classic, fresh and seasonal.   At  $115 it’s a bit of a bargain too.  There are a few seats left.  If you’re interested in coming along call the restaurant on (09) 483 9571.
