Bellota Wine Festival Sam Harrop Skycity 20th July 2016

Auckland’s favourite authentic Spanish tapas bar has turned ten. Birthday celebrations were hosted by the man behind the magic, world-famous Kiwi chef, Peter Gordon.

“I’m very proud to be celebrating Bellota’s 10th birthday,” said Gordon. “Looking back on the past decade, I’m particularly appreciative of the staff that have come and gone over the years. We’ve employed some wonderful folk who shared my passion for authentic Spanish cuisine we serve, and who have helped ensure Bellota has stood the test of time in an increasingly competitive Auckland restaurant market.”

Bellota now has one of New Zealand’s largest Spanish-only wine lists, recently adding seven directly imported Spanish wines, exclusive to Bellota.

The restaurant was SkyCity’s first signature restaurant on Federal Street, later expanding to include an outdoor bar and seating, adding to the award-winning precinct’s al fresco dining.

“Federal Street has changed significantly since Bellota first opened. The area has become one of Auckland’s top dining destinations.”
