Aucklanders, it’s time to raise a glass and say “cheers” to our phenomenal wine industry. Our favourite wine festival—Winetopia—returns for its fourth year this June, promising to delight guests with exceptional grape varieties, exciting entertainment and notorious personalities.
We’re talking goods from 60 premium wineries, including favourites from the likes of Gibston Valley, Man’O’War, Elephant Hill, Astrolabe and many, many more. Sample the offerings and stock up on favourites by bottle or case. Drink alongside New Zealand celebrities, meet industry experts and participate in various masterclasses to become a connoisseur yourself. Learn everything there is to know about wine—from the difference between varieties, to tasting techniques and the importance of glassware. And because no wine experience is complete without the accompaniment of glorious food, Winetopia is pairing up with some of Auckland’s favourite restaurants (Paris Butter, Xoong and Monsoon Poon) to provide food perfectly matched to your vino.
Magnificent wine, marvellous food and brilliant company—this is not an event to be missed.
When: Friday, 14 June and Saturday, 15 June.
