Sensational Central Otago at Lolli REDINI

Tuesday 3 September @ 6:30 pm - Tuesday 8 October @ 9:00 pm

It doesn’t come out until October however I’m offering a preview of my discoveries at Lolli REDINI on Tuesday 30 July.

Fabulous Franc

Monday 28 October @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Cabernet franc is on a high – emerging from its minor role in Right Bank Bordeaux blends to solo superstar status. I’ve been gathering some local francs along with others from around the country for a tasting at Ferment on Monday 28 October. It’ll be in the GT WINE format with a handful of Loire benchmarks from Chinon and Bourgueil thrown in for good measure. It will be a most interesting night!
