Thanks for coming Auckland!
Thank you for joining us this year! Top wineries from across New Zealand descended on Shed 10, this was the greatest wine day out! With a full schedule of tastings, talks and new experiences with us. Mark your diaries for next year, dates to be announced soon.
Winetopia starts with a line-up of incredible wineries who gather to make share with you their best drops. It's a journey of discovery and it's one worth taking.
Rest assured there will be plenty of delicious food to go with your wine finds. We'll publish the offering here before the event.
We asked some of the most knowledgable wine gurus in Aotearoa to join us for some intimate 40 minute masterclasses. Master's of Wine; Bob Campbell and Jane Skilton, Cameron Douglas (Master Sommelier) and many more joined us!
GAGGENAU SOMMELIER SESSIONS
The new Gaggenau Sommelier Sessions offered visitors a chance to step inside the mind of a Sommelier (and taste some of their favourite wines!). Acclaimed chef Des Harris demonstrated sumptuous food matches in the Gaggenau kitchen on the Friday and Saturday evening sessions.
Enjoy some of the most celebrated wines in the country with our 'Golden Coins'. Each Golden Coin gets you one 30ml tasting of some of the most astonishing New Zealand wines, each retailing at over $100 per bottle.
To supplement the search for your favourite drop, we ran free talks and tastings on the Main Stage. An opportunity to 'Share a Glass' with some famous faces, catch up with renowned wine critics and learn the tricks of the trade direct from sommeliers and winemakers.
