The Vintners’ Lunch

On Sunday 11 September 2022 we will host The Vintners’ Lunch, our largest annual fundraising event. The event began in 2008 and showcases some of Wellington’s finest culinary talents through a six course degustation luncheon.

The hospice secures the talents of six chefs to create original courses. We are pleased to welcome the following chefs to our 2022 Masquerade Mardi Gras-themed luncheon:

  • Laurent Loudeac – Tartines
  • Sylvester Nair – SSC Hospitality
  • Jonathon Dowling – Soprano Petone
  • MacLean Fraser – Bolton Hotels
  • Shweta Ghate – Oaks Hotel
  • Ashish Dhar, Executive Chef Sarin Hotels.

Tickets are available by contacting Debbie Ferrel on 021 190 7057 or

Last years’ sell-out ‘Hearts of Gold’ Vintners’ Lunch raised an astonishing $300,434 for people living with terminal or life limiting illnesses in the Hutt Valley. What an amazing result. A heartfelt thank you to everyone who made the event such a success.

The ongoing success of Vintners’ Lunch ensures we are able to raise funds which enable us to continue to provide specialist care to people with a terminal or life limiting illness.
