Waterfall Bay 2015 - a taste of Seresin life

At Seresin, we like to do things a little differently, which is why - when you visit - you will find yourself driving through native plantings and olive groves, and dodging pukekos and guinea fowl, to reach our Cellar Door and offices. And, should you take a vineyard tour, you'd not only see our organically and biodynamically managed vineyards, but also our gardens, orchards, jersey cows, goats, chickens, pigs, beehives and working Clydesdale horses. Yes, we grow grapes and make wine, but we are far more than simply a vineyard: we are a farm, an estate, a bio-diverse ecosystem and a family. 

Once a year, in the summer, we host our Waterfall Bay dinner series at our occasional restaurant in the Marlborough Sounds, as a way of sharing some of this Seresin life. We work with an international chef to create a menu that showcases not only our wines, but also some of the produce from the estate. 

This year we are delighted to be welcoming Nic Poelaert from Brooks Restaurant in Melbourne to join our team from February 12th-15th. Born and raised in France, Nic trained and worked under numerous acclaimed chefs at notable establishments, including Restaurant Gordon Ramsay in London and Restaurant Michel Bras in France - both Michelin starred. In Melbourne, he opened the multi-award winning Embrasse restaurant, which he owned and managed for four years before deciding that change was needed. Now head chef at Brooks in Melbourne, he works directly with small producers to create dishes that are seasonal, respectful of the producers and the ingredient, as well as adventurous in terms of flavour, texture and appearance.

Nic is looking forward to the prospect of working with our team to create a menu that reflects Seresin and all that makes us unique, and we are looking forward to making him part of our family. 

Waterfall Bay tickets are now available to purchase, and we would love to have you join us for our celebration of summer, Seresin, good food, good wine and good company. 
The ticket price of $300 is inclusive of a five course degustation menu with matching wines, and the boat journey across the Sounds to the tranquil surroundings of Waterfall Bay itself. 

The dinners run from 12th-15th February:

12th February – Thursday Dinner
13th February – Friday Lunch
13th February – Friday Dinner
14th February – Saturday Dinner
15th February – Sunday Lunch
