It’s an exciting time for New Zealand in the San Francisco Bay Area. Emirates Team New Zealand is on the water for the America’s Cup and doing a fantastic job at showing how New Zealand is the leader in nautical design and sailing. It’s not just on the water that the Kiwis excel, but in the wine world too! Local restaurants are joining in the antipodean fun and serving up world-class New Zealand wine with superb food, so you can see and taste what all the fuss is about.
Vibrancy, purity, and balance are why New Zealand wines pair so well with food. More than 20 of San Francisco’s leading restaurants and wine bars are featuring New Zealand wines by the glass, in flights, and in pairings with menu items throughout the Louis Vuitton and America’s Cup competitions (available through September 30th). Many of the Bay Area’s leading retailers are also offering a wide selection of New Zealand wines. Email here to learn more—we’ll send you an email (just one!) with everything you need to know.
New Zealand is best known for distinctive and refreshing sauvignon blanc. But have you tried NZ riesling, pinot gris, and chardonnay? How about some of the world-class pinot noir, which comes from the cooler regions? Warmer regions excel in red blends and syrah. Make some of these discoveries of your own by ordering a glass of New Zealand wine in the participating restaurants throughout the summer of racing. Email us here so we can send you an email with details! Cheers and enjoy the summer of racing!
