F.A.W.C! RM's Aotearoa vs JK's Italy

376 Parkhill Road, Te Awanga, Hastings

Put Rod McDonald + Sir John Kirwan in the same Cellar Door and what do you get? A New Zealand vs Italian wine-off with plenty of banter, tall stories and delicious wine talk!

Join them for a long lunch while they compare wines from John's family wine business (jk14wines) and ours (Te Awanga Estate), including a pre-release tasting of one of Te Awanga's new summer wines.
Definitely not a sit-still-and-be-quiet tasting, you'll while away the afternoon with good friends, tall stories, long tables, bottles of wine and bowls of deliciousness from Italian chef Annalisa Pascucci. Lisa trained at the Slow Food Italia Academy in Rome and has worked alongside such people as Roman chef Paolo Cipriani, and Italo-Peruvians Rosanna Visona and Ricardo Ruiz. Lisa will bring an authentic take on the fresh, simple, family fare of Italy.

Ticket price includes sit down lunch, all wine, tall stories and wine (and possibly rugby) chatter
