The Fine Wine Delivery Long Lunch is back... with Rippon!

Join Fine Wine Delivery for a Long Lunch with Nick Mills from Rippon Vineyard

Rippon's century-long story is essentially the story of Central Otago, the story of one family's devoted custody of a very special piece of land.

Farmed biodynamically by the latest generation, Nick Mills and his wife Jo, Rippon arguably make Central Otago's finest, most Burgundian styled KIWI Pinot Noirs, consistently achieving among the regions and NZ’s highest ratings from International critics that matter.

Come join us as Nick takes us through the story of his vineyard and his very adventurous wines, each wine perfectly matched to a dish by the equally adventurous Philip Reynolds.

On arrival enjoy the Rippon “Jeunesse” Riesling with Petit Pork Hock Cassoulet, Apple, White Bean, Nectarine, Lime Pearls, Seared Scallop, white Peach Salsa, Vanilla Poached Tomato, caramelised shallots
