Grape vs. Hop Degustation Dinner

Grape vs. Hop Degustation Dinner

For one night only, Hippopotamus goes hippodrome. Claim your seat as Hippo transforms into a rink of rivalry – New Zealand’s finest creators of wine and craft beer are teaming up for some friendly competition. We trust you to keep it civil.

Our mates at Emerson’s Brewery and Martinborough Vineyard will each pair their best libation with seven courses of degustation heaven from Hippo’s Executive Chef, Jiwon Do. Their fate is in your hands as you vote for the victor of each round – whether grape or hop. But first, the action starts with a champagne welcome reception.

All palates welcome, from the sophisticated to tastebuds-in-training. 



  • Bubbly welcome reception
  • A seven-course degustation dinner
  • Beer and wine pairing for each round
