The Long Table at Dusk - Gisborne Peak Winery
The Long Table at Dusk is the one time a year that we open our doors in the evening and invite our guests to join us for a magical dinner amongst the vines. It is an opportunity to immerse yourself in our beautiful vineyard atmosphere whilst enjoying a spectacular five course menu. Enjoy delicious wines and food to match while you watch the sun set over Mt Gisborne. The lighting is golden, the air is soft and the smells are sweet at this time of day. Frank Gorlitz of Schatzi’s Woodend is doing the catering this year so we can assure you that the food is going to be fantastic. We start the evening at 6.00pm with a complimentary glass of Sparkling and appetizers on the deck. It’s important to be on time, because at 6.30pm we move out into the vines. Seated at one long, communal table, guests enjoy three delicious courses; wine will be sold by the glass and by the bottle, with pairing suggestions listed on menus. At about 9:00 pm, we will move back into the Cellar Door area and enjoy dessert (with Muscat and Espresso coffee also available as an optional extra). Bookings are absolutely essential as numbers are limited. In recent years this event has sold out very quickly, so get in quick! Full payment is taken at time of booking. PLEASE NOTE: As this is a set menu, if you have any special dietary requirements you must let us know when booking! We can cater for gluten free and dairy intolerant. Other requests should be discussed with the office as we have limited catering facilities. Suitable footwear for walking in the vines is recommended. Bring a jacket or sweater as the night air can be cool. YOU CAN BOOK ONLINE via our website UNDER Wine Store Tab. Just click here. OR, PHONE US on (03) 5428 2228. Cost is $125.00 per person. This event is not suitable for children. The event will be inside if inclement weather is predicted.
