Future Makers.. A Pop Up
We are proud to announce our very first By The Bottle pop up!
Details: Thursday 17th June
Time: 6pm - 9pm
Where: Pocket Bar, Grey Lynn
Join us for a fulfilled evening of food and wine by some extremely talented people representing the future of our industry in New Zealand. Enjoy 3 courses by chef Cory Campbell with wines from Neudorf, 144 Islands and Organised Chaos.
We're very excited to have Cory on board for our very first pop up. Having worked in some of the very best kitchens around the world including the likes of Noma (Copenhagen), Vue de Monde (Melbourne) and Barangaroo House (Sydney). His keen interest in all things food and sustainability has seen Cory turn his attention to initiatives such as Plastic-free kitchens, Zero Waste Initiatives, Sustainable farming, E-Water Systems, and even producing his own pure sea-salt.
Cory's ethos is simple. "For a dining experience to be full, it must ignite all senses and awaken the soul. Quality ingredients, skilled cooking, fine wine, excellent company, memorable stories...and, most of all: great fun".
Currently working as a private chef out of Matakana, this is a fantastic opportunity to experience food by one of the country's best.
Joining us for the evening are three of our favourite producers; Neudorf, 144 Islands and Organised Chaos.
About The Producers
Hayden Penny of Organised Chaos has committed himself to the region he loves, Hawkes Bay. And there’s a lot to love. He does a lovely job of summing up what he’s all about, so we think that’s best left in his words:
‘We work with growers that share my passion and respect for the land, the Organised Chaos wines are a fresh, vibrant, and textural expression of a modern day Hawke’s Bay'.
When we sat down to taste with Jake Dromgool of 144 Islands we realised pretty quickly that we were onto something special. The vineyards are planted 20km inland from the Bay of Islands on gravelly, volcanic soils at an exposed 300 metres above sea level. From this site overlooking some of the Bay’s 144 islands, Jake and his wife Melika have been bold and experimental in planting a myriad of different varieties including Albariño, Semillon, Syrah, Tempranillo and Sangiovese. Farmed organically without irrigation, the resulting wines are both sophisticated and delicious.
Finally, we will be joined by Rosie Finn, Director of Marketing and Sales for Neudorf. Rosie's parents Judy and Tim Finn planted the vines in 1978, one of the first in Nelson. Organically certified, Neudorf make wines with integrity and have cemented themselves as one of New Zealand most iconic producers.
“Minimal intervention, single vineyard, organic, good for the planet wines that speak of their place.” - Rosie Finn
We're excited to have Rosie with us to showcase some truly delicious wines.
