Friday 11 – Sunday 13 November 2022
Over three days and two nights, discover the craft of wine making in our vineyard and winery and enjoy exceptional dining prepared by The Landing’s private chef, while staying in the luxurious comfort of our Residences.
The Bay of Islands region is one of New Zealand’s ‘food baskets’, with incredible seafood, fresh produce and grass-fed meats, as well as being a rising star of the wine industry. Set on a spectacular 1000-acre coastal estate, The Landing is an unforgettable retreat.
At our Weekend with the Winemakers, our experts will take you on a journey of discovery. From a tour of the terroir of our hillside vineyard to guided tastings of our range accompanied by exquisite local cuisine.
The Landing winemaker Ben Byrne and renowned consultant winemaker Warren Gibson will lead a tasting masterclass in our winery barrel room. In addition, they will take barrel-tastings and give you the chance to try your hand at blending for a wine to take home.
Each day, you’ll enjoy breakfasts, lunches and dinners created by our head chef. Produce is grown in The Landing’s own gardens and orchard and sourced from local fishermen and farmers. As a result you are given a true taste of the region – all accompanied by The Landing’s own wines.
In your free time, you can explore the scenic and historic highlights of The Landing. Take to the water for sight-seeing or fishing trips on our private boat. After that, meet New Zealand’s shy native icon – the kiwi – on a guided night walk. Paddleboards, kayaks, mountain bikes, tennis courts, gym and a steam room are also all available during your stay.
It’s a weekend of conviviality and gastronomic discovery and is set in one of the most beautiful retreats in the country. Don’t miss your chance to secure your place.
