We’re giving one lucky Denizen the chance to sample Somm Cellar Door’s Guest in Residence set menu with Church Road — Enter now

Known for holding some of the country’s most coveted bottles in its expansive cellar, Somm Cellar Door has quickly solidified itself as a revered local authority on wine. This month, the chic destination has a new guest in residence — stalwart New Zealand winery, Church Road, and we’re giving away an exclusive dining experience for two.

With a month-long line-up of exclusive offers, there are more reasons than ever to visit Somm, with bespoke Church Road wine flights, a special set menu thoughtfully created around the prestige TOM Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot, and an unmissable wine tasting event with Church Road’s Chief Winemaker Chris Scott.

Church Road set menu

Celebrate the residence with a special set menu, created with Church Road’s lauded TOM wine in mind. Here, a glass of 2019 Church Road TOM Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot (from the cellar) is served with a delectable Carrara Wagyu sirloin with Hawke’s Bay jus, chimichurri, shoestring fries, and rosemary salt, which beyond being delicious, presents a unique opportunity to try a wine that is seldom available by the glass. The Guest in Residence set menu is $75pp and is available until Sunday, June 2nd.

Church Road’s Chief Winemaker, Chris Scott

Or, if you consider yourself a bit of a wine connoisseur (or you’d like to become one), secure a spot at a wine tasting with Church Road’s Chief Winemaker, Chris Scott. Known as one of New Zealand’s most celebrated winemakers, having been named New Zealand Winemaker of the Year by Winestate Magazine five times, Scott will be pouring some of his favourite Church Road wines while sharing insight into their nuances. In each tasting, you’ll have the opportunity to experience four of Church Road’s most exceptional vintages while feasting on a delectable spread from Somm’s clever culinary team, with the option to purchase the wines to take home and enjoy further post-event.

Church Road wine flight

And if it’s simply a taste of one of the country’s oldest and most-loved wine regions that appeals, make sure to request one of the curated Church Road wine flights when you’re next visiting.

Somm’s reputation as one of the preeminent and most delicious wining and dining spots in the city is further solidified with this new Guest in Residence, bringing a taste of Hawke’s Bay to central Auckland, offering city-siders more than a few ways to fill their May dining agendas.
