Christchurch, it's your turn!
Thank you for joining us this year! Wineries from Central Otago to Northland and of course Martinborough too descended on the garden city, Ōtautahi! With a full schedule of tastings, talks and new experiences with us. Mark your diaries for next year, dates to be announced soon. See what you missed below!
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.
FOOD & WINE MASTERCLASSES
We've asked some of the most knowledgable wine gurus in Aotearoa to join us for some intimate 40 minute masterclasses. Bob Campbell (Master of Wine), Emma Jenkins (Master of Wine) and many more will be joining us! For a small ticket price you get a big wine adventure.
You haven't tasted until you've tasted blind. Think you know your Gris from your Blanc? This is where we show you how the pros do it!
Enjoy some of the most celebrated wines in the country with our 'Golden Coins'. Each Golden Coin will get you one 30ml tasting of some of the most astonishing New Zealand wines, each retailing at over $100 per bottle.
Get your Golden Coins as an 'add-on' when purchasing your entry tickets to Winetopia
To supplement the search for your favourite drop, we will be providing free educational talks and tastings on the Main Stage. This is your opportunity to 'Share a Glass' with some famous faces and our MC Angus Dunn, catch up with renowned wine critics and learn the tricks of the trade direct from sommeliers and winemakers.
We're serious about wine, and we're serious about fun.
An hour before the end of each session a live band will be playing to help us end out the night in style. We are very excited to share with you the band line up for Winetopia Christchurch!
