The Big Red Aussie Dinner at Huka Lodge

Huka Lodge is a world famous tourist lodge in Taupo, on the volcanic plateau in New Zealand's North Islan.

Every year Huka Lodge looks to find ways to make their annual events even more exciting, especially for those of you who have attended your favourites so regularly.

This year they are focussing on a carefully selected group of celebrated wines that are often award-winning and rare examples of the two most famous red varieties of Australian wine – Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. The selection will include the Brokenwood Graveyard Vineyard Shiraz 2011 from the Hunter Valley, the Vasse Felix Heytesbury Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 from Margaret River, the Peter Lehmann Stonewell Shiraz 2008 from the Barossa valley and from Jim Barry, The First Eleven Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 from Coonawarra.

The five-course dinner created especially, to enhance the robust flavours of these wines, will be beautifully presented by Huka Lodge’s Executive Chef Paul Froggatt.

Details of this event can be found at the 100% Pure New Zealand website.

This event takes place on Saturday 27 September 2014 and VATNZ is heading to Taupo on Sunday 28 Sep 14 to fly the attendees back to Auckland and Wellington.
