Holding some of the country’s most coveted bottles in their expansive cellar, the newly-opened Somm Cellar Door at Princes Wharf has introduced a new series allowing guests to taste its range’s depth and breadth. Initially designed as an inner-city wine-tasting concept, visitors can taste flights from some of the country’s best wineries — including Te Kairanga, Vavasour and Mt Difficulty. Very swiftly, it has established itself as one of the preeminent and most delicious dining spots in the City under the delicious leadership of Chef Gavin Doyle.
Somm Cellar Nights effectively cracks open the institution’s impressive vault of wines, where for one night a week only, anyone will get to try a wine from the cellar, hand-selected by Somm’s team. While the wine will change each week, Somm’s cellar proudly boasts an extensive back catalogue of library vintages, limited edition releases, and large-format wines, so excellence is almost always assured.
As these wines are not generally sold by the glass, and some extremely rare, it makes these Tuesday night sessions very tempting. After all — there are few better reasons to rally a crew for a night of delicious plates and pizzas to share, especially with this unprecedented access to some of the country’s finest wines.
Available every Thursday from 3pm.
