The Vintners’ Lunch

Every year in July we host The Vintners’ Lunch, which is 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 2021 luncheon:

  • Sylvester Nair – Sarah Searancke Catering
  • Yufei Xie – OLI & MI Kitchen
  • Laura Greenfield – Field & Green
  • Laurent Loudeac – Tartines French Cafe
  • Jonathon Dowling – Soprano Petone
  • Ashish Dhar, Executive Chef Sarin Hotels.

Our sell-out ‘Hearts of Gold’ Vintners’ Lunch was on Sunday 4 July 2021. An astonishing $300,434 was raised 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.
