Celebrate the magic of New Zealand with a memorable dinner alongside some of the country’s best wines.
It’s the Family of Twelve’s Family Feasts. Over winter and spring we’re offering a series of feasts in Auckland, Wellington, Blenheim, Nelson and Christchurch. Starting as biennial events in 2017 their terrific popularity sees us repeating the feasts for a third season in 2020.
Family Chair Paul Donaldson of Pegasus Bay says “the dinners celebrate the diversity and passion of kiwi excellence and you’re invited to join in. One special wine from each family winery will be served at each dinner.
Each restaurant will serve 12 wines matched with hero dishes. Restaurants from five regions include Arbour, Atlas, Hopgood’s & Co, O’Connell St Bistro, 27 Steps and Cibo.”
Established in 2005 The Family of Twelve share a dedication to kiwi excellence in wine. Our twelve wineries represent eight regions and our work is all about education and sharing our journeys in fine wine.
We’re really looking forward to sharing some specially chosen bottles from Family cellars over stimulating conversation and eclectic dishes with you this winter and spring. A marvellous way to spend an evening.
“With wine and food so central to the good life we’re thrilled to work with a group of dedicated restaurateurs and chefs; reaching out to share our passion with wine lovers at some of our favourite eating places. We promise a memorable experience, maybe you’ll even hear a few Family secrets.”
Bookings are essential.
