The Cabbage Tree Vineyard is a small winegrowing property in Martinborough, owned and operated by David and Winifred Bull. Winifred is vineyard manager. David is winemaker. Most of the vines were planted in 1998, and the wine is made only from grapes grown in their vineyard. They are small enough to give personal attention to all steps of viticulture and wine-making, and patient enough to let the wines achieve their optimal quality. Ripeness is ensured by their selective hand picking of individual berries and bunches over several weeks of harvest. Join us for this very special Dinner with the David and Winifred, sample their wonderful Semillon, Pinot Noir and Merlot, matched with the magnificent menu creations of Chef Samuel North. And the evening may just reveal some very entertaining surprises.
David Bull, Winemaker
Samuel North, Executive Chef
Vintaggio and Muse on Allen have teamed up to bring you an exciting series, Dinner with the Winemakers. Award-winning Executive Chef, Samuel North, creates 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 winemakers 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 -- but reservations are limited, so book early.
