VISITOR TESTIMONIALS

It was a well organised, and classy affair. Really enjoyed it! - Christine, Auckland

This was the best yet I feel, the right balance

of food and wine, a good variety of vineyards.

I loved there were more bubbles this year,

that’s what I was hoping for!

- Rachel, Wellington

I love that it is a fun and enjoyable event to attend, I pretty much come every year and

really enjoy the format.

- Gordon, Wellington

You may need a bigger venue - it was such a hit I’ve told people all over Christchurch to come next year!

- Alisha, Christchurch

Very very good event - looking forward to next year. Airforce

museum venue was unique.

- Duncan, Christchurch
