Cooking Classes:

At Hester Creek Estate Winery we offer you the rare experience of interacting with an acclaimed Chef in an intimate setting. You are one of only 14 guests seated at a granite island in a state of the art kitchen. The multi-course menu skillfully pairs delicate and intricate flavours with our award winning wines. Watch as the Chef prepares each course before you and shares little known culinary secrets. Take home the recipes as well as the memory of a truly unique experience.
