A serious wine and food experience in Queenstown, New Zealand

The Rees is one of New Zealand's finest luxury hotels, known for its focus on fine food and wine. It is a destination I can highly recommend.

The hotel overlooks Lake Wakatipu in Queenstown and hosts regular wine and fine events hosted The Rees' director of wines Mark Rose, who is also the general manager.

The first dinner this season features winemaker Kate Radburnd from Radburnd Cellars in Hawke's Bay, who has over 35 vintages in her kitbag. She was formerly chief winemaker with Vidal and Pask, and started Radburnd Cellars in 2017.  

The Rees executive chef Corey Hume will craft a five-course menu to accompany the Radburnd Cellars wines with tickets $165 per person. 

For those who want to stay the night, the Rees' Radburnd Cellars Residential Package costs $302.50 per person including one night’s stay in a lake view hotel room with a complimentary upgrade; two tickets to dinner;  breakfast for two the next morning and a noon checkout.
