Vino drinkers, it’s time to raise a glass or three and say cheers because the ultimate wine event is coming to Auckland—Winetopia. Presented by Singapore Airlines, it promises to be two days of wine celebration. They’ve scoured the country for the absolute best wineries, sommeliers and personalities who will all descend on Shed 10 to share their favourite drops and stories.
The event is an evolution from the success of Wine AKL last August, and promises to be bigger, better and bolder. It’s also brought to you by the same people that bring Restaurant Month, Street Eats and the Taste of Auckland Festival, so you know you’re on to a good thing.
Mingle with like-minded vino lovers (like us) and literally taste your way through New Zealand’s wine regions and enjoy especially paired food while you’re at it. There will also be entertainment for those who want to get their dancing feet on. Naturally you’ll be able to buy full bottles (or cases) of your faves to take home to enjoy later.
Winetopia is organised in three sessions:
- Friday 20 May 5:00—8:30 pm
- Saturday May 21st from 12:00—3:30 pm
- Saturday 4:30—8:00 pm.
The first Ridiculously Good Value Tickets go on sale on March 15 and at just $20 (+booking fee) for five tastings plus a wine glass, it’s ridiculously good value. Once those are sold, tickets will be upped to $30. Food will be purchased with cash on the day.
When: Friday 20th and Saturday 21st May
Where: Shed 10, Queens Wharf
