New Zealand winery, Cloudy Bay is treating culinary enthusiasts to an iconic nationwide food and wine tasting series. With the introduction of the Pinot and Game tasting trail, beginning May 15th to June 30th, Cloudy Bay is inviting all New Zealanders to partake in this impeccable pairing of game dishes with its Pinot Noirs.
Now in its fifth year, the Pinot and Game tasting trail showcases the best of New Zealand’s food and wine expertise and encourages the concept of eating seasonal foods. Fourteen renowned chefs nationwide including Head Chef’s from Prego, Oyster & Chop and Botswana Butchery Queenstown curated hors d’oeuvres that bring out the best flavours in game when paired with Pinot Noir.
Corresponding with New Zealand game season, the restaurants involved in the nationwide ‘trail’ will showcase their originality and creative flair, bringing their signature game dishes to the table. Each dish is designed to pair perfectly with Cloudy Bay’s Pinot Noir 2016 or Te Wahi 2016.
Te Wahi is Cloudy Bay’s own version of Central Otago Pinot Noir. Cloudy Bay has been making wine from Central Otago since 2010, purchasing the Northburn vineyard in 2014 and leasing part of the Calvert vineyard on Felton Road in Bannockburn. Its acclaimed Pinot Noir “Te Wahi” combines the qualities of the two distinctive vineyard sites.
The Cloudy Bay Pinot & Game Tasting Trail runs until 30 June 2019. For a list of all participating restaurants and booking details visit CloudyBayPinotandGame.com
