Heart, Land and Sea

A Made in New Zealand Trans-Tasman Takeover

Get ready for a three-day, three-level Trans-Tasman takeover of the French Saloon and Kirk’s Wine Bar precinct on the corner of Hardware Lane and Little Bourke Street celebrating the vinous and gastronomic wonders of Australia’s “little bro” across the ditch.

Those in the know, know there’s so much more to New Zealand than our world-class Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. Hosted by New Zealand Master of Wine Stephen Wong and with menus by acclaimed Melbourne Chef and French Saloon Owner Ian Curley, a theme of Heart, Land and Sea anchors the menu and matched wine, showcasing the rich offerings of New Zealand’s food and wine scene, exploring the impact of place and culture.

Choose from a Saturday dinner or Sunday lunch session, each with a different line up of wines and kiwi inspired menu.

Allocated seating: Shared tables. Please notify events@nzwine.com for any groups where tickets haven’t been purchased together.
Note: No wheelchair access
