Wine Tasting at New Zealand House

Bob Campbell MW is probably New Zealand's most well-known wine buff and critic - the Down Under equivalent of Jancis Robinson. This May, he will host an intimate wine masterclass featuring some of his country's top wines, with food by fellow New Zealander Anna Hansen's The Modern Pantry. The one-day course will showcase all that is great about this beautiful country.

The course covers the history of winemaking, with a focus on modern techniques that encourage sustainable viticulture and organic winemaking, plus developments that have increased the profile of New Zealand wines, such as the screw-top revolution. Guests will be able to sample new vintages and regional styles, including a Kalex Riesling from Central Otago, the 1994 Dog Point Section, from Marlborough, a Coopers Creek Sauvignon Blanc from Hawke’s Bay, and many more. The course includes a light lunch from The Modern Pantry.

There are only 45 places available on this course, which takes place on Sunday 3 May from 10am-4.30pm. Tickets cost £150 and can be booked via The New Zealand Wine Cellar.
