There's a lot to be said for the perfect pairing. Get it right and there ought to be electricity not just sparks. We invite you to our Valentines paired wine feast.
Now don't worry, we won't be serving those electric daisies again, they were akin to licking a nine volt battery anyway, so instead what we will be doing is building four dishes directly around the bold flavours of four wines from the most sustainable of New Zealand Wineries, Yealands.
The food and wines in harmony, the sum of the parts adding up to more than the humble ingredients. Bring your partner, bring friends or whomever you like, the pressure of choice is lifted, the knowledge that the match on the table is at least there.
Do bring as much electricity as you can muster, rest well knowing that there will be candle light just in case.
