New Executive Chef

Meet our new Executive Chef David Haase

David Haase has joined Heritage Boutique Marlborough Vintners Hotel as the new executive chef.

David trained in fine dining in his home country of Germany and has worked in two one star Michelin restaurants in his career to date. One being the Hotel am Schlossgarten Stuttgart and the other hotel restaurant HirShen Stuttgart.

He came to New Zealand in 2007 to take up the position of sous chef at Herzog Estate Winery on just a one year contract, but fell in love with New Zealand and stayed.

For the last three years he has been head chef at Wither Hills Winery and now takes up the new role at Heritage Boutique Marlborough Vintners Hotel to run his own kitchen.

David is excited about his new challenge and is inspired by the hotel’s own vegetable garden, orchard and olive grove. He is also passionate about utilising produce.

”Marlborough has fantastic local produce and the menus I create will be heavily influenced by seasonal, fresh, local produce,” says David.

 “We are excited about this opportunity to have David join our team to enhance our reputation as a truly gourmet boutique hotel,” says Tracy Purcell general manager of Heritage Boutique Marlborough Vintners Hotel.

Well as November heralds the silly season, so it begins..

With the fireworks out of the way for another year, we turned our attention to taming the flame in the kitchen. with Martin Bosley joining us to host The Nelmac Garden Marlborough Long lunch.

The lunch was held in The Vintners room and the guests dined on  Marlborough Ora Regal King Salmon and Silere Alpine Marino Lamb..

A very cool, calm and Collected Martin drove the service with the help of his Sous Chef Paul Amstell and our kitchen team.

Martin used MVH kitchen as a base of operations during his 4 day stay here and it has been a pleasure to have him around. We will welcome him back at anytime.

Many thanks to Nelmac Garden Marlborough and the sponsors for making it all possible.

On a sombre note, My condolences go out to the Weiss family, Martin will be a great loss to the Christchurch Culinary Community.

Also to the Trotters, Charlie will go on being an inspiration to us, his vision helped make the industry what it is today.
