Travel to Earth's end to discover tiny but renowned New Zealand wine territory. The world’s most popular, tropically mouth-watering Sauvignon Blanc white wines act as gateway to Kiwi wine, stretching across both sheep- and Hobbit-friendly islands. The world’s southernmost vineyards—just outside adventure capital Queenstown with its endless entertaining 200 kph suicide options--produce outstanding cool-climate Pinot Noir reds; North Island volcanoes hide little-known sub-regions for lovely Chardonnays, Merlots, and Cabernet Sauvignons.

Local food favorites mussels, lamb and those delicious Kiwi pies stand on queue for your pairing pleasure. Traveling 18,000 km in a single evening was never so easy ;-)

Event wrap-up: It was a hungry crowd for last night's outlay of New Zealand wines and cuisine. We thought the imported NZ green-lipped mussels with classic Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc might get the nod, but other pairings edged them out:

  • A top-notch version of Germany’s signature Riesling grape from star winemaker Rippon (Red and White, 32.50 chf) was a knockout with Prawns with Lime Chili Jam.
  • For reds, two nice Pinot Noirs were outmuscled by the Merlot/Malbec/ Cabernet Sauvignon ‘Winemakers Reserve’ blend from Esk Valley (Red and White, 30.00 chf) with classic Kiwi Mince and Cheese Pies from Meet Pi.
