Chateau d'Yquem Vineyard Estate

QT Museum Wellington is getting a taste of the ‘world’s best wine’.

The hotel’s signature restaurant Hippopotamus is presenting a world-renowned wine to New Zealand for the first time. For one night only, Château d’Yquem will host its first winemaker’s dinner in the country.

Château d’Yquem is a Bordeaux vineyard that dates back 400 years and is deemed by some to be the world’s best white wine.

“It’s an honour to host an event of this calibre. We serve Chateau d’Yquem’s 1988, 1990 and 2003 vintages and to be able to highlight our extensive offerings through a complete Hippopotamus experience from dining to hospitality – it will no doubt be a memorable evening,” Head Sommelier at Hippopotamus Florent Souche said.

The event will take place on 22 August, at The Billiards Room on the ground floor of QT Museum Wellington.
