IF YOU LOVE WINE, YOU'LL LOVE WINETOPIA
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.
