Queenstown’s Gourmet Secrets Unlocked with Peppers

Leading luxury accommodation group, Peppers, has unveiled the secrets to Queenstown's gourmet food scene as part of the 'Peppers Gourmet Food Trail' - a national program that celebrates fine food and wine across seven New Zealand Peppers retreats and resorts.

Set amongst the variety of dining options that make up the vibrant Queenstown foodie enclave, Peppers Beacon Queenstown has made it easy for guests with the Queenstown Food Trail map - a selection of the top spots for fine dining; family friendly restaurants; after dark night caps and best breakfast and brunch cafes. To make it even easier for Peppers guests, a charge-back facility has been organised with selected venues along with preferred seating wherever possible.

The Queenstown Food Trail map is offered with the Peppers Gourmet Food Trail package which starts from $249 per night in a studio room and includes buffet breakfast for two people. And so the culinary journey can begin on arrival, guests will also enjoy freshly baked bread and a tasting platter featuring the flavours and foods of the Otago region including some of the world's most desired indulgences; chocolate and cheese. The Remarkable Sweet Shop Crème Brulee Fudge will satisfy the sweetest tooth complemented by the silky smooth Windsor Blue by Whitestone Cheese.

Included in the fine dining recommendations is Wai restaurant, located on Steamer Wharf and offering a stunning seafood menu. Guests of Peppers Beacon will receive preferred seating and a glass of Mumm Cordon Rouge N.V. Champagne on arrival.

For an after dinner drink, the plush leather armchairs at Bardeaux are hard to beat. An ideal late night spot for wine lovers, guests of Peppers Beacon, Queenstown will receive a complimentary Central Otago Pinot Noir tasting with a flight of four local Pinots and accompanying tasting notes.

For family dining, Finz Seafood and Grill has the perfect atmosphere with fine foods at affordable prices. Preferred seating for Peppers Beacon, Queenstown guests will ensure the whole family is able to enjoy the waterfront view.

Queenstown's gourmet experiences are not just reserved for after dark. Guests that visit the Gibbston Valley Cheesery will enjoy a cheese making presentation and complimentary tasting and the staff at Peppers Beacon Queenstown can ensure a visit to The Remarkable Sweet Shop coincides with the production of their world famous Remarkable Fudge.
