Everyone’s favourite booze-filled journey, the classic pub crawl, has had a grape new transformation and with only 50 tickets left, you're going to want to jump on this quick smart. Urban Wine Walk is an epic, self-guided wine tasting experience, allowing participants to meander their way through Wellington's bustling bar and restaurant scene while sipping on a lip-smacking selection of NZ wines along the way.

Each winemaker will have a few of their favourite wines available for tasting, so you can make it your goal to hit all 11 venues, or you can pick out a few that sound right up your alley and take a more relaxed pace.
