A Weekend of Dry River

  • Cape Kidnappers

Friday 5th & Saturday 6th August, 2022

In celebration of the 2012 “library release” of Dry River Pinot Noir, winemaker Wilco Lam returns to Cape Kidnappers in Hawke's Bay for a weekend event you will not want to miss.


Dry River is arguably one of New Zealand’s leading premium wine brands, with a pinot noir that is perhaps Martinborough’s most highly regarded. Dry River crafts wines of great depth and presence and exceptional ageability, so the 2012 release brings much cause for excitement.

The Saturday night dinner will be a showcase of not only the 2012 pinot, but will include magnums, interesting whites, and more. The wines will be perfectly matched to 
the lodge’s 5-course tasting menu.

And because wine brings together the very best of people, a relaxed and convivial Friday night dinner is part of the special weekend events.  For this optional dinner, guests are asked to bring along their best selves and a favourite bottle from their cellar. Wilco will be doing the same, and an evening of good food, special wines, good company and special surrounds awaits all those who love their wine.


The weekend is presented at no additional cost to the lodges’ seasonal tariffs, so book early at your lodge of choice to ensure your preferred suite.
