Valle de la pirámide - vino que respira de su lugar. La historia de Pyramid Valley comienza en un lugar mágico donde magníficas aves nativas vagaban y se elevaban, donde la tierra produce en abundancia y las estrellas se alinean para la grandeza. Este no es un lugar mítico. Es real y alberga algunos de los vinos Pinot Noir y Chardonnay más profundos del mundo.
Pyramid Valley está ubicado en la región de North Canterbury en la isla sur de Nueva Zelanda.

A collaboration brought to you by Dhall and Nash Fine Wines and The Rees Hotel, Queenstown.

Enjoy a delicious four course dinner hand-crafted by executive chef Corey Hume perfectly paired with the best of Billecart-Salmon champagne and Mountford Estate wines.   

Located in the heart of Champagne near the charming village of Mareuil-sur-Aÿ in France, the House of Billecart-Salmon has upheld a value of excellence since it began in 1818. As producers in the very best of champenois tradition of “Grand Cru”, it comes as no surprise that Billecart-Salmon has been a sponsor of the Grammy Awards.

Another creator of superb wines, Mountford Estate, is a boutique vineyard and winery in the picturesque Waipara region in North Canterbury on New Zealand’s South Island. It grows on land dubbed ‘The Golden Mile’ where a high amount of heat and light combine with the soil make-up of clay on top of marl with active limestone deposits. They use biodynamic methods in the vineyard; all the way from when a young vine is placed into the earth right through to the winemaking practices.
