This is not a drill––Pinot Palooza is officially hitting the streets of Auckland (and fear not fellow Kiwis, Christchurch is getting a taste of this Pinot-filled Palooza as well).
That’s right folks, the Southern Hemisphere’s largest food, wine and music festival is back to please us Pinot lovers. Because really, who doesn’t love a good excuse to eat, dance and drink to your heart’s content?
Everyone’s fave grape, the almighty Pinot will be brought to you by Bottle Shop Concepts, the team behind the cult wine event, Game of Rhones. This Palooza will combine some of the countries finest grapes to tickle your taste buds, accompanied by New Zealand’s most celebrated chefs. 2017 will feature the best of Pinot Noir from more than 100 of New Zealand’s and Australia's hottest wine producers—Curly Flat, Josef Chromy, Ata Rangi, Stefano Lubiana, Dog Point and our very own, Pegasus Bay, to name a few!
Now let’s be real, you can’t survive on Pinot Noir alone (as hard as you may try) so we’re pretty lucky that the food line up is going to be nothing short of incredible. Full menus are TBC but trust us when we say you will be one bloated human once you’re done with this festival.
Not that keen on chugging Pinot all night long? Why not cleanse the pallet with Brew Moon beer and cider? The Somm Bar is here to stay and will be providing you with some quality grape all festival long.
So what are you waiting for? Get in quick because tickets are selling like hotcakes.
Pinot Palooza 2017 is gonna be a gamer changer for all food and wine events––trust us.
