Vintaggio is teaming up with Muse on Allen to bring you an exciting series: Dinner with the Winemakers! A series of dinners for lovers of fine dining and good wine who wish to appreciate the science, the art, and the magic of what is in the bottle.

Award-winning Executive Chef, Samuel North, will be creating outstanding menus to pair with wines made by some of New Zealand's best winemakers. Not only will you enjoy the sensory pleasures of the evening, but you will meet the winemaker and learn from them about their terroir, grape varieties, vineyard and cellar practices, and vintage characteristics that combine to make these wonderful wines. The Chef, too, will comment on each dish, its ingredients and their origins, and special preparation techniques. Vintaggio's Sommelier, and any keen diners, will contribute to the discussion. Seating will be communal, so come alone, in pairs, or even as a larger group.

The inaugural Dinner with the Winemakers at Muse on Allen, on Sunday 22 February, will feature Strat Canning of Margrain Vineyard, Martinborough.

Strat Canning is a quietly confident and somewhat understated winemaker who started with the company in 1996, in time for the second Margrain vintage. Having also planted, run and produced wine from his own small block in the township for many years, he has an excellent understanding of the complexities of the region and is totally absorbed with the evolution of flavour and structure from vine to wine. Pinot Noir is his particular passion. Margrain also produce a range of white wine including a Methode Traditionelle, such that Friday night drinks are never boring. Of the whites, Riesling is the variety that Strat holds most dear and each year he marvels at the succulent fruit flavours and punchiness of the texture and acidity of this sometimes underrated variety.

Working closely with the owners and a small but passionate team, Strat has played a key role in the development of both viticulture and wine style at Margrain and is keen to ensure there is no barrier between vineyard and winery efforts. He also takes an active role in marketing and takes great pride in seeing the finished product delivered safely into the various markets worldwide.

Numbers for this event are limited, so book early through the Vintaggio website to secure your place.
Arrivals from 6.00pm, for apperitifs commencing at 6.30 pm.
