Autumn/Winter Events 2014

Huka Lodge is poised to celebrate, in inimitable style, its 90th anniversary with a stellar line-up of extraordinary talent for a season of inspirational and intimate occasions, during the autumn-winter months of 2014. 

Highlights will include intimate dinners with authors Eleanor Catton and a Celebrate the Art of Living weekend will bring together highly acclaimed and respected leaders in their fields. Health and wellbeing expert Dr Libby Weaver, winemaker Kevin Judd, and purveyors of luxury jewellery brands Chaumet and Pasquale Bruni,Hartfield Jewellers, will all show guests how to get the best from life in so many ways. Aston Martin will also be providing their latest sports cars for a test-drive to continue the theme of inspiration and beauty from luxury brands.

An annual institution at Huka Lodge, the Bollinger Champagne Dinner will be hosted by Clive Weston, sharing with Huka Lodge guests part of the small global allocation of an R.D. (récemment dégorgé) release made in 2014, along with other vintages. The menu will be created by culinary genius Martin Benn of Sydney’s celebrated Sepia, named ‘Restaurant of the Year 2014’ by the Sydney Morning Herald’s Good Food Guide.

Join us for yet another splendid version of the Lodge’s popular Big (Aussie) Red Dinner, hosted by great Australian and sporting legend Nick Farr-Jones. A selection of award-winning and rare red wines showcasing Australia’s famed Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz styles will include the Brokenwood Graveyard Vineyard Shiraz and the Vasse Felix Heytesbury Cabernet Sauvignon amongst others.

This year’s extraordinary programme of events at Huka Lodge concludes with an evening spent with Eleanor Catton, the recent recipient of one of the world’s most prestigious literary awards, the Man Booker prize.

Due to circumstances beyond our control the Paspaley Pearl Discovery Weekend has been postponed.
