Prophet’s Rock with Paul Pujol

$95 per person
This is a very special event for Pembroke as we welcome our long-awaited host, winemaker Paul Pujol. This exclusive event is only available to our Otago Wine Club subscribers and there is very limited seating, so be sure to book your spot quickly.
Paul has long been enchanted by the allure of French pinot noirs and aromatic whites. After an extensive six-year journey across the globe in pursuit of grape varieties, he found his calling at Prophet's Rock. Today, the influence of Paul's travels is unmistakably present in the wines he crafts in Central Otago. Paul's winemaking philosophy embodies tradition, emphasizing a deep respect for the vineyard and a patient approach.
Food for this special event will be provided by Troy.

New flavours in-store
Wines from Georgia are now available at Pembroke, featuring the oldest and only purple grape in the world - Saperavi. Saperavi is the leading red grape variety in Georgia, and is one of the few teinturier grape varieties, featuring both red flesh and red skin. Expect Saperavi wines to reveal aromas and flavors of dark berries, licorice, grilled meat, tobacco, chocolate, and spices. With a deep fruit character and lively acidity, this stands out as a gutsy choice.
We're also pleased to introduce Mullineux & Leeu Family Wines from South Africa - Syrah and Chenin Blancs of its finest.
New Japanese Whisky and Sake have arrived as well, so come and ask for a tasting. And don't forget to browse our port wine collection as a comforting choice during the colder winter months.
