The Rees Hotel Queenstown Winemaker’s Culinary Series Dinner with Quartz Reef

For exceptional wine and delicious cuisine, The Rees Hotel Queenstown’s latest Winemaker’s Culinary Series Dinner with Quartz Reef, is the perfect choice for a long weekend getaway this winter.

Escape to one of Queenstown's most stunning locations this winter, with The Rees' Winemaker's Culinary Series Dinner.

Join a host of wine-lovers and devout foodies, for one sublime evening savouring Quartz Reef’s collection of quality wines alongside the sophisticated and refined flavours from True South Dining Room’s awarding-winning executive chef, Ben Batterbury. 

True South Dining Room’s mouth-watering menus harness fresh, local New Zealand flavours with French and English fusion recipes and seasonal produce sourced from local suppliers. Patrons will delight in dishes cooked by True South Dining Room's executive chef Ben, during a sublime culinary experience.

Hosted by The Rees Hotel's Mark Rose and wine legend and owner of Quartz Reef, Rudi Bauer, guests will sample an outstanding array of unique wines. Rudi’s Austrian heritage and two decades of winemaking experience, give Quartz Reef wines further dimension and variety. The Pinot Noir is the spirit of Central Otago while the Pinot Gris takes on a rich, dry, textured flavour.

Quartz Reef is situated in one of New Zealand’s top wine regions, Central Otago and was named in Dish magazine’s Top 12 New Zealand Sparkling Wines. During this coveted event, guests will enjoy five delicious courses, matched to six Quartz Reef wines. To make the evening even more memorable, diners will receive a first-taste of an unsampled Quartz Reef wine.

To really up the ante, diners are invited to stay while, wake up in paradise and enjoy an indulgent weekend away at The Rees Hotel, with the ultimate trifecta of luxury, fine dining and relaxation. 

Come Saturday, August 4, The Rees will play host to an intimate group of fine wine and food devotees. To make this offering even more accessible, The Rees are offering a Residential Package for those attending this unique event, priced at $335 per person.
