event information

venue

Join us for an unforgettable day of wine & food, friends & fun.

In 2017, we are delighted to host 40 wineries from around the South Island - from boutique, single varietal producers through to the founding fathers of the South Island's wine industry, you will be able to sip and savour a huge range of beautiful wines from Marlborough down to Otago and everywhere in between.

Find your perfect wine & food match at one of the gourmet food stalls, who will be serving up everything from fresh strawberries and ice-cream to just landed seafood. Or head over to one of the nine top local restaurants for a more substantial offering.

Festival features include the Wine Seminar Lounge, where five top wine experts present a series of free seminars, complete with tastings - or catch the country's best culinary talent demonstrating a range of dishes, live in the Cooking Theatre.

Or just grab a glass and chill out under the trees, listening to some top music acts.
