Four exclusive nights of food and wine matches from the Marlborough Region at The Grill by Sean Connolly.

The Marlborough Dinner Series offers a taste of New Zealand’s largest wine region that can usually only be found when visiting Marlborough.

The series showcases the wines of four Marlborough wineries that can’t be found in the supermarket. Sean Connolly has matched the wines of Nautilus Estate, Hunters Wines, Seresin Estate and Hans Herzog with four beautifully crafted menus with produce from Marlborough.

Each dinner offers five courses, four of them matched with wine. Diners will be hosted by the winemakers in an intimate setting of just 40 people. Each dinner begins at 6:30pm and will be on shared tables.

Book online or email obowers@destinationmarlborough.com to make a reservation.
