"It’s been said If ever a film were made about New Zealand wine, John Belsham would be the leading man. He cut his winemaking teeth in Bordeaux, France before becoming one of New Zealand's most highly-regarded winemakers."
Believing New Zealand had a significant future in premium wine, he founded Foxes Island wines in 1992 which was one of the first wineries to produce single vineyard Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. This is an opportunity to immerse your taste buds on a Foxes Island wine journey perfectly matched with a multi-course lunch.
If you have never tasted a Foxes Island wine, it is highly likely that you have tasted a wine that Belsham has recommended. For 20 years, he curated the in-flight wine selections for Air New Zealand. Back on the ground, Belsham was also the voice behind the wine reviews for Cuisine Magazine for 16 years, one of NZ’s most trusted sources for food and wine inspiration and recommendations.
Let the stories begin and the wine flow. Join us for a long lunch at Springfield House, one day only.
Price: $230 per person to include six courses with matched Foxes Island wines
11.00am - 4.30pm, morning tea served in the Garden Room from 10.15am
