New Book – Food, Wine And Stories From Central Otago

MEDIA RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE USE – 22 JULY 2014

Amisfield Releases New Book – Food, Wine And Stories From Central Otago

Food, wine and stories are the focus of a new book that shines the light on celebrated Central Otago wine producer Amisfield and its award-winning Amisfield Bistro.

The book draws together 25 years in the wine business and a decade of running an iconic Queenstown bistro into one beautiful book, reflecting everything that is good about Amisfield’s wine and food – fresh, simple and in many ways, untouched.

The book, called ‘Food, wine and stories from Central Otago’, contains over 100 recipes from the archives of the Amisfield Bistro kitchen in which head chef Jay Sherwood and his talented team have generously shared their tricks of the trade, and shows readers how to make some of Amisfield’s best-loved recipes at home.

This is not just a cookbook,” said Amisfield CEO Craig Erasmus. “For those with an interest in viticulture and winemaking the book contains an insight into the award-winning wines created by our winemaker Dr Stephanie Lambert and viticulturalist Andre Lategan, Amisfield’s grape growing and winemaking philosophy and all the features of our property that make our wines so unique.

“The creation of this book has been a ‘labour of love’ by the Amisfield team, talented author Simon Farrell-Green and photographer Shantanu Starick, the latter who has captured the four seasons at Amisfield.

“It shares the vision of our original shareholder, John Darby, and it importantly brings the Amisfield Estate to the Bistro with pages of awe-inspiring photography.”

Amisfield marketing manager Debbie Zampieri, who has a background in publishing, said the book had been years in the making since meeting Simon Farrell-Green in 2011. “The book really takes people behind the scenes, drawing together the history and collective staff memories of our business,” she said.

Established in 1988, Amisfield produces wine from fruit grown on 80 hectares in the Pisa region of Central Otago.

The book published by Random House New Zealand goes on sale on August 1 at bookstores, from Amisfield’s cellar door near Queenstown and online atwww.amisfield.co.nz
