A journey of NZ Wine, with Bob Campbell MW and The New Zealand Cellar

Our friends at the New Zealand Cellar are running a fascinating tasting with Bob Campbell MW, which we would encourage anyone in the UK to consider - it looks like a great day.


 A one-day wine course providing a thorough overview of winemaking in New Zealand with an emphasis on regional differences. This course will cover New Zealand’s winemaking history, the implementation of sustainable viticulture and pathway toward organic winemaking, the closure revolution that lead to the widespread adoption of screwcaps and the country’s rapid growth in wine production that now ranks New Zealand as the world’s 13th largest wine producer.

The New Zealand wines Bob Campbell MW has selected for the day are:

Nautilus Brut Cuvee - Marlborough
Dog Point Section 94 - Marlborough
Coopers Creek Sauvignon Blanc - Hawke’s Bay
Kalex Riesling - Central Otago
Millton Riverpoint Gew├╝rztraminer - Gisborne

The course will include lunch catered by Anna Hansen from The Modern Pantry.
