No Black Tie presents a very special night with the Saint Clair Family Estate winemakers from Marlborough, New Zealand and musical royalty Rachel Guerzo, for a beautiful assembly of food, wine, and jazz.
Winemaker Heather Stewart, Saint Clair Family Estate’s white wine maker, will be presenting their award-winning wines with a food and wine pairing menu. She has been working with the Saint Clair Family for the past ten years. Heather has also worked at prominent family-owned wineries in Chianti, Tuscany and Santa Ynez Valley, California. Originally from coastal Auckland, Heather moved to New Zealand’s most significant wine region, Marlborough, a decade ago after completing a Master of Science and Graduate Diploma in Oenology.
Born into Malaysia’s most influential music family, the Solianos, jazz pianist/singer Rachel Guerzo has emerged as one of the most exciting and innovative jazz musicians in her own right, honing her art and cementing her reputation by playing to discerning live audiences over the past two decades.
A fluid pianist with a rich and sultry voice to match, a charming personality with a great sense of humour, Rachel is a naturally gifted entertainer in a class of her own. Rachel’s most unique ability to breathe new arrangements to already popular jazz standards, R&B and chart topping tunes is her winning trademark.
With a resume that includes a sell out performance at Dewan Filharmonik Petronas (DFP) and two albums that has garnered local and international buzz, Rachel continues to strengthen her portfolio and remain relevant to the regional jazz circuit.
