July diary date with Prince of Pinot

Martinborough winemaker Larry McKenna of the Escarpment Vineyard
Taste 20 years of Escarpment Pinot Noir this July with winemaker Larry McKenna, who started the brand in 1998 and will crack open Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir to mark the 20th anniversary.
The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs in Northland is the place, 13 to 15 July is the time and McKenna is the host.
The weekend begins with welcome wines, a relaxed dinner and a wine options game for fun, which will be hosted by McKenna on Friday, before Saturday’s structured tasting highlights of Escarpment wines over the past two decades.
The Saturday night tasting menu will be prepared by lodge head chef Barry Frith who will match the food to the Escarpment wines.
Larry will share his insights into the past two decades of vintages, styles and his experience as co-founder, director and winemaker of Escarpment Wines on Martinborough’s Te Muna.
