    It's time to warm up a bit with a special SCANZ tour of the sweet Chelsea Sugar Factory!  

    Firstly, a special thanks to John Gilbert for organising this!

    The tour will fully immerse you, walking through the working factory floor and travelling around our Chelsea Bay Train site. You will learn how raw sugar arrives at Chelsea and becomes the final product in supermarkets. Learn about the history of the Chelsea site, taste test delicious syrups, and see the wondrous sugar mountain!  

    The unique part is that your guide will be the Production Manager of the refinery, so feel free to ask questions.

    Now, the details. 

    • The tour costs $25.  
    • There is a limit of 18 people on tour, so we will start with only allowing SCANZ members but will include a waitlist if we do not fill all the spaces. The tour will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
    • We need people there at 1.45 pm at the latest! The tour will start at 2 pm, but you miss out if you are not on time. 
    • The tour will last an hour. There are a few steps, but this should be easy for everyone to attend.
    • Everyone on tour must wear a long-sleeved top, long pants/tights, and flat-soled, enclosed shoes. Basically, you must cover your skin. Chelsea will provide your safety gear, including a pink hi-vis vest, hairnet, pink helmet, and safety glasses.

    After the tour, we will head over to a comfortable, warm location a few minutes drive away for some drinks, nibbles and networking. We haven't confirmed where this will be, but we will let you know ASAP.

    • Horse & Trap, 3 Enfield Street, Mt Eden, Auckland

    Historically we have had some amazing events.  In 2019, we held a wine and food tasting night at the Horse & Trap.  That night we learned the amazing science of what happens when you mix specific wines with specific foods, and the amazing results of the combined ingredients!  

    The night was so good, and everyone who went raved about it so much, that we are holding it again!

    This year we will have Miria from Yealands leading the tasting, so we are anticipating an exceptional event.

    If you like wine and food, I cannot stress how AMAZING this event is.

    We start with an aperitif, then follow with 5 tasting courses of wine & food.   Following is a list of the courses, and you will find out when you come which specific Yealands wines match with them to turn a great tasting experience into something mind-blowing.

    Start of arrival

    An aperitif on ice in a tumbler to give people a chance to arrive & settle.

    1. Oysters in half shell done 2 ways
    2. Yoghurt marinated chicken skewer with saffron aioli
    3. Lamb Cutlet with lemon & pistachio crust
    4. Beef Skewer with Bernaise Sauce
    5. Blue cheese & pear Crostini

    Each person will be given a sheet to take notes about each wine.

    P.S. We will have a vegetarian option as well for guest who do not eat meat or seafood.

    Here are photos of the food & wine from 2019 - just to tempt your taste buds ...
