The Annual Roederer Weekend

Friday 26, and Saturday 27 October 2018

The annual Louis Roederer Champagne event is back for 2018. This event, in its fifth year, is always a sellout on the Wharekauhau calendar, and always a fun filled weekend of great wine, great people, and great cuisine.


The weekend begins with a unique dinner that partners specially selected Californian and New Zealand wines from the lodge owner’s private cellar – The California V New Zealand Wine War. These wines will be paired with a multi-course degustation menu crafted by lodge Executive Chef, Marc Soper.


Stroll up for a relaxing country breakfast the following morning, before doing as much or as little as you would like for the day. Rejoin us for the marquee Louis Roederer Champagne degustation dinner including the legendary Cristal Champagne, hosted by wine legend, Brett Newell, from EuroVintage, Roederer’s exclusive importers.
