The Vintner’s brunch requires twelve restaurants to match signature dishes with wines from twelve vineyards for 450 paying guests.
The top choice in 2014 was the Prego’s Slow Braised Beef Short Rib, Beetroot Feta Puree and Crispy Polenta matched with the Dunleavy Grafter Syrah 2012.
Last year Te Motu won together with Toto restaurant. Paul Dunleavy says this shows “how cuisine friendly the Te Motu wines are”. The proceeds from the Vintner’s Brunch go towards the Hospice North Shore.
