The Man O'War Summer Lunch

The Man O'War Summer Lunch

Waiheke's only tasting room on the beach provides a wonderful, idyllic setting to our annual fundraiser on the island.

Catering to both locals and 'mainlanders' who love fine food, sunshine and of course wonderful Man O'War wines, this event is a sought after soirĂ©e on the summer calendar. The event returns again on Sunday March 5th, 2017. With the finest food, wine and views this great city can provide, you'll need to grab your tickets now before they sell out.

The confirmed 2017 lineup is:

  • Nick Honeyman - Paris Butter
  • Glen File - Baduzzi
  • Gareth Stewart - Euro & The Culpeper
  • Mark Southon - O'Connell St Bistro
  • Tony Price - Private Fine Dining
  • Paulie Hooton - The Oyster Inn
  • Stu Rogan - White + Wongs
  • Ajay Zalte - Waipuna

As a flagship fundraiser for Auckland's Westpac Rescue Chopper, this event is highly sought after. We provide free transport (donated by generous sponsor Fullers) from Auckland City, via Matiatia, to the private jetty at Man O'War bay - strictly limited to the first 300. Guests enjoy the beautiful lunch and fine wines in a relaxed, garden setting like no other in New Zealand. Live music & a charitable auction feature in a most unique afternoon.

Thank you to our main event sponsors who help make this wonderful event a reality every year:
