We are thrilled to welcome Paul Brajkovich, Sales & Marketing Director at Kumeu River, for a spectacular four-course wine dinner featuring the critically acclaimed wines of Kumeu River in Upstairs 2. The Brajkovichs, owners of the Kumeu River Winery, are nationally recognized as a founding family of the New Zealand wine industry, and the current generation are internationally recognized as producing world class Chardonnay. Kumeu River Chardonnays have been named to The Wine Advocate's 50 Best New Releases from 2015 and Wine Spectator's Top 100 list.

Two courses of the dinner will pair library releases of Kumeu River’s elegant Burgundian-style vineyard-designated Chardonnays next to current releases so that guests can experience the evolution of these sublime wines.

"If you can taste history, duty, and family pride in a glass, it's there in the Kumeu River Chardonnays...now producing some of New Zealand's greatest Chardonnays, not to mention the world's." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, M.W., Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate

Enjoy an exquisite four-course dinner paired with wines from this celebrated estate for $135 all inclusive.
