A Right Royal Day at Wither Hills

A Right Royal Day at Wither Hills

The team at Wither Hills were proud to host the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for a private lunch earlier today, at the Wither Hills winery in Marlborough.

Following weeks of top-secret planning, the team at Wither Hills and its restaurant partners Dave & Sarah Anderson put on a lunch comprising Marlborough’s finest fresh produce for the royal couple and their private assistants today at 12.30pm in the upstairs board room, with stunning views over the vineyards and winery, and out to the Wither Hills themselves.

Comments Guy Hernandez, Business Manager for Wither Hills, “Myself, Sarah, Dave and the team at Wither Hills are absolutely honoured that the royal couple chose to include a visit to our restaurant at Wither Hills in their incredibly busy schedule in New Zealand. It was a pleasure to host them. We are all mighty proud that it has been a right royal day at Wither Hills!”

Wither Hills winery is named after the imposing Wither Hills ranges, which form a dramatic backdrop to its vineyards, and which enjoy long sunlight hours, cool nights and are nourished by the waters of the Wairau River, Marlborough.

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
