The Rees Hotel Queenstown Announces Winemakers Culinary Series with Family of Twelve

May 7, 2019 Dining No Comments Email Email

After the sold-out success of the inaugural feast in 2017 The Rees Hotel Queenstown is thrilled to be part of Family of Twelve’s Winter Feast Tour in 2019. Its Winemakers Culinary Series with Family of Twelve offers guests a chance to savour a mouth-watering winter feast prepared by award-winning Executive Chef Ben Batterbury in True South Dining Room paired with twelve exquisite Kiwi wines from eight New Zealand regions. Enjoy thought-provoking conversation and diverse, seasonal dishes at this educational dining event celebrating New Zealand wines. At the end of the night curl up in front of the fireplace in the comfort of your cosy and sophisticated room at The Rees Hotel Queenstown. Enjoy panoramic views of Lake Wakatipu and The Remarkables mountain range and a full cooked breakfast the next morning.

14 June Winemakers Culinary Series with Family of Twelve
Hosted by Blair Walter of Felton Road, Paul Donaldson of Pegasus Bay and Mark Rose, CEO of The Rees Hotel.

Family Chair Paul Donaldson of Pegasus Bay says the dinners are a celebration of kiwi excellence. One special wine from each family member will be served at the dinner.

“We’re really looking forward to sharing some specially chosen bottles from Family cellars over stimulating conversation and eclectic dishes with you this winter.

“What a brilliant way to spend a winter’s evening. With the wine and food worlds so intertwined we’re thrilled to work with a group of such dedicated restaurateurs and chefs; reaching out to share our work with wine lovers at some of our favourite eating places. We promise a fabulous experience, maybe we’ll even share a few Family secrets.”
