Guests of the award-winning resort in New South Wales’ Blue Mountains will have exclusive access to a food and champagne immersion in the wilderness this winter, featuring the limited 166th edition Krug Grande Cuvée
Beginning this month, renowned Australian resort Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley will host an immersive culinary experience exclusive to resort guests in the Blue Mountains: the Krug Picnic.
This limited-time experience will takes guests ‘off road’ into the 7000 acres of the resort’s grounds to a secluded spot where they will get to enjoy a food and champagne immersion in a private, picturesque nature setting.
To prepare for the unique experience, the resort’s Executive Chef Nancy Kinchela worked with Krug Maison to develop a gourmet picnic that includes a selection of local produce and seasonal menu items, which are regularly updated and hand-selected to pair with the Krug Grande Cuvée 166ème Édition champagne.
This season the bounty includes a Victor Churchill charcuterie board, Maroochydore king prawns served with lemon, fresh lobster spring rolls and a Lyonnaise salad with confit duck leg, crispy lardons and frisée lettuce. An artisanal cheese board with house made lavosh, panforte and a deconstructed lemon meringue tart will complete the gourmet picnic experience.
Krug’s Grande Cuvée is the ultimate expression of the vision of Krug and is re-created each year. The current release, the 166ème Édition, is a result of exceptional finesse and slow maturation with a blend of over 140 wines from 10 different years having spent seven years in the cellars of Krug.
The Krug Picnic is launching as part of the Winter Culinary Festival at Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley, which sees the resort hosting a series of unique culinary experiences in partnership with some of Australia’s leading chefs and award-winning winemakers this winter. Curated by Executive Chef Nancy Kinchela, each gourmet experience will reflect the resort’s culinary philosophy, celebrating the very best of seasonal, regional and, where possible, organic produce, sourced from local boutique farms, private growers and vintners.
The Krug picnic is available to resort guests for $895 per couple.
Two-night accommodation packages for two at Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley start at AUD $2,090 per evening in a Heritage Villa with private pool, including gourmet breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, local wines and beers with meals, non-alcoholic beverages with meals and two nature-based activities.
