French Indulgence at The Rees Hotel Queenstown

“I’ll take Taittinger Blanc de Blancs….. It is not well known, but it is the best champagne in the world.”- James Bond, Casino Royale, by Ian Fleming in 1951.

Enjoy a very special world-class dinner with Champagne Taittinger at The Rees Hotel Queenstown’s True South Dining Room. The French champagne house is revered for their legacy of knowledge in the art of champagne production.

Executive Chef, Ben Batterbury, has creatively hand-crafted a five-course menu complementing the Taittinger style, enabling guests to savour the very essence of the accompanying wines.

The Rees Hotel Queenstown promises a tailor-made soirée of sensory discovery and culinary excellence. With spectacular alpine views across Lake Wakatipu, locally sourced produce woven into innovative dining concepts and French elegance in every glass, the evening is one not to be missed.
