Peppers Parehua Martinborough Hosts Olive Harvest Festival Leisurely Lunch

29 May 2014: Luxury retreat, Peppers Parehua Martinborough is hosting a Leisurely Lunch in its Pavilion Restaurant as part of next month’s annual local Olive Harvest Festival.

Teaming up with local olive producers Brodie Estate Olive Grove, the lunch will have a distinct olive flavour throughout its Provincial South Wairarapa menu created by Peppers Parehua head chef Bram Ellis.

The two-day Olive Harvest Festival on June 28 & 29 will be a 'gastronomic affair' with each participating grove inviting festival goers to share their special environment, personality and activities, at their own pace where they can have first hand experience at picking olives, watching an olive press in action and sampling local olive oils.

Book a festival ticket and enjoy a three-course olive themed lunch at the Pavillion Restaurant at Peppers Parehua. Stay overnight in a luxurious cottage (28 - 29 June 2014) from $264* per couple including full cooked provincial styled breakfast.

Peppers Parehua General Manager Simon Tocker says, "We’re very excited to be a part of the annual Olive Harvest Festival which is growing year on year. The region's olive oil is outstanding, so it's timely that 'all things olive oil' are celebrated traditionally, at the time of the annual harvest.”

Peppers Parehua is an hour's drive from Wellington nestled in the heart of the Wairarapa amongst rolling hills, sprawling gardens, vineyards and olive groves. The lodge offers a selection of suites and rooms, with its Pavilion Restaurant serving the finest seasonal local Wairarapa produce.
