Discover how colour, shape, sound and texture can alter your experience of flavour, with an evening of wine and gourmet food that you’ll never forget – Church Road’s The Feast of Five - five senses, five courses, five ways to re-discover wine.

This event series has been created by the multi-award-winning New Zealand winery in collaboration with multisensory explorer, Dr Jo Burzynska, who will showcase how, by stimulating your senses in different ways, you can draw out more from one delicious glass of wine than ever before.

Church Road’s The Feast of Five Auckland event will take place on one night only at The Lodge Bar & Dining. Enjoy a five-course degustation menu with each course demonstrating the power of the senses through individual experiences, complimented by wine carefully selected by Church Road Chief Winemaker, Chris Scott - a four times Winestate Winemaker of the Year. 

Dr Burzynska is a well-known New Zealand artist, wine writer, researcher and curator who merges her passion for these fields to create multi-sensory art and design immersive spaces, including the world’s first ‘wine and sound’ bar as part of a previous project. She recently completed an interdisciplinary PhD that explored the influence of sound and music on the perception of wine aroma and flavour across the fields of art, sensory science, and psychology. Church Road’s The Feast of Five will offer you the opportunity to soak in her unique knowledge about food, wine and the senses, for yourself.

This event is being held as part of Church Road’s celebration of 125 years of winemaking excellence on the site where Church Road stands today. 125 incredible years of capturing the riches of the Hawke’s Bay region, to create its award-winning portfolio of wines, the best of which will of course be centre stage at each event.
