Peter Bourne Wine Weekend

Hayman together with Gourmet Traveller WINE hosted a fantastic ‘Wine & Dine Weekend’ hosted by one of Australia’s foremost wine educators, Peter Bourne aka ‘The Wine Man’.

The weekend included a Three Island Pinot Masterclass in which Peter guided guests on a vinous voyage to discover the seductive delights of Pinot Noir from 3 Islands; Tasmania, Martinborough and Central Otago. Guests had their skills tested as they had to pick the regional differences in a blind taste off.

Following the Masterclass, a special hosting of The Chef’s Table, Hayman’s premier culinary experience, was held. The event included a spectacular 8-couse degustation menu which was prepared and presented by the Hayman Kitchen Brigade, and each course included a matching wine personally selected and introduced by Peter Bourne. Following the dinner, guests were treated to a tour of Hayman’s famous kitchens, superb wine cellar and delectable chocolate room.
