As they say, good things take time and we've been waiting in anticipation all year for the long awaited Modern Pantry 2.
Chef and New Zealander Anna Hansen opened her first restaurant in Clerkenwell not long before the New Zealand Business Women's Network launched and has hosted numerous events and heavily supported our Network. Now the wait is over and although we've been slightly delayed (we previously communicated and sent save the dates for 10 June) we will be the very first to experience The Modern Pantry Finsbury Square.
The evening will be a wonderful celebration of what our Network is all about, the opportunity to connect with each other, to learn and be inspired with lots of surprises thrown in. This will be an event not to miss and you will be able to say you were the first to dine at the second Modern Pantry. Usually people do amazing things to get on the guestlist of an new opening restaurant and you're already half way there.
Now every good birthday bash would be nothing without exceptional Kiwi wine and we're very lucky to bring you a new comer to the UK market, Blind River.
About Blind River
The small Blind River vineyard is in Marlborough's Awatere Valley in the north-east of New Zealand's South Island. It occupies a sheltered spot at the foot of gentle, rolling hills overlooking the picturesque valley floor. Mount Tapuaenuku lies to the west and the Pacific Ocean to the east.
Planted with Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, the soils are deep, stony clay with seams of free-draining, clay-mixed gravels on river terraces. The vineyard is split into blocks with each treated separately and the corresponding wines individually handmade, ready for blending to achieve the ultimate in style and quality.
