Laugh in the face of mid-year alcohol abstinence, get Dish Drinks tickets

For a large number of people in this industry, the idea of doing Dry July is probably seen as a fate worse than death. So if you're in that category, or if you just want to experience a few 'Other Reds', then book yourself some tickets to Dish Drinks, where wine writer and bon vivant Yvonne Lorkin will take you on a journey beyond the well-known red wine varieties of Pinot Noir and Merlot to explore a world of fabulous lesser known red wines, such as Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Tempranillo.

You will taste six wines under Yvonne's expert and entertaining tutelage, including three of the top rated wines from the latest Dish Tasting Panel: The Matawhero Church House Malbec 2013 (5 stars), Hawkes Ridge Wine Estate Tempranillo 2013 (4.5 stars) and Gillman Cabernet Franc 2008 (4.5 stars).

The wines will be matched to a delicious tasting menu prepared by the head chef at James and Mint Kitchen Catering.

WHEN: 6.30-8.30pm, Wednesday 16th July 2014

WHERE: James, 18 Stanley Street, Parnell, Auckland

PRICE: $79 pp (includes tasting of six wines matched with food)
