Wellington restaurant Whitebait offers one of New Zealand’s premier dining experiences. Now F.A.W.C! Is offering you the unique opportunity to sample Whitebait’s menu in a festival atmosphere, matched with Supernatural Wine Co.’s natural wines.
Head Chef James Pask and his team have curated a selection of dishes highlighting the best of Whitebait’s signature “Story of our Seas” tasting menu, creations inspired by the freshest seasonal and micro-seasonal products, sustainably sourced directly from the producer and prepared using modern methods designed to showcase these premium ingredients. At Whitebait, the chefs are constantly challenging themselves to innovate while honouring the singular bounty of Aotearoa’s oceans. They are excited to be partnered with Supernatural Wine Co. to bring their vision of contemporary fine dining to the Hawke’s Bay.
Supernatural Wine Co. produces certified organic, minimal intervention white and skin-fermented white wines from its vineyard at Millar Road.
Millar Road provides seriously stylish accommodation overlooking the Supernatural Wine Co. vineyard, Hawke’s Bay and the Pacific Ocean. The setting for the dinner is Haumoana House where you will be surrounded by art by Martin Poppelwell provided in conjunction with SPA_CE Gallery in Napier.
Ticket includes bread, snacks, four courses of food each matched with a 75ml pour of Supernatural Wine Co.'s unique wines and petit fours. Additional glasses of wine can be purchased on the night (for those not driving!).
