New Zealand takes centre this stage this week with guest Dr. Damian Martin, winemaker, viticulturist and visionary.
Dr. Martin, General Manager of Winegrowers of Ara, will take us on a journey of discovery with a focus on the emerging and unique viticultural zone of Ara located in Marlborough.
Carefully tended, close planted vines, when married with small batch, non-interventionist winemaking, amplify and refine the quality and distinctiveness of the renowned Marlborough sauvignon blanc and pinot noir varieties.
Among the world’s great acquired pleasures is eating raw oysters matched to an elegant Sauvignon Blanc, one of New Zealand’s signature grape varietals, so John Petcoff proprietor and partner of Oyster Boy renowned retailer, restaurateur and caterer responsible for bringing the very best in “mollusks for the masses” will also join us in studio.
