What's better than celebrating one legendary winemaker's birthday? Celebrating two legendary winemakers' 70th birthdays! Noble Rot has the honour of hosting the Prince of Pinot, Larry McKenna, and Mr. Chardonnay, John Hancock, as they celebrate their milestone birthdays over a long lunch - and you're invited!
Two pioneers of the New Zealand wine industry come together to share tall stories over a five-course degustation served alongside multiple wines from both winemakers as well as some of their personal favourites.
John was integral in the growth and reputation of Hawkes Bay in the early days of the New Zealand wine industry, and was a huge driving force behind Trinity Hill, now running a wine company, Hancock & Sons.
Larry has been integral in the rise of quality of Martinborough as a wine region, and over the years has had strong connections to multiple Wairarapa vineyards, including Escarpment, Martinborough and Te Muna.
Let's raise a glass and send these two legendary makers of wine into their next decade in style.
Ticket includes: A five-course lunch and wines.
Please note that seating for this event will be at shared tables, this means you may be seated with other people as well as the group you have booked with.
