Wine dinner at Manx

Here's an opportunity to try some very special food with some very special wine. Manx at Portside Wharf will host a Felton Road wine dinner on Monday 17 August.

I've been a fan of Paul McGivern's food since his early days at Tognini's. He used to be so excited when he found a new local supplier of spinach or lettuce. Paul's interest in local produce and his expertise in cooking translate into very fine fare at Manx which is a great place to dine.

For this event guests will enjoy a five course menu matched with current and back vintage wines from Felton Road winery in Central Otago. Central Otago is one the most southerly wine regions in the world producing some of the best examples of new world pinot noir, chardonnay and Riesling. Winemaker Blair Walter will be Manx’s guest to present the wines on the night.

Apart from Paul's food, I also like that there's normally plenty of free parking at Portside.
