Welcome to Wine Capital!

There's so much goodness to explore at Winetopia Wellington - with wineries from Central Otago to Northland and of course Martinborough too descending on the Capital, this is your greatest wine day out! We're bring a full schedule of tastings, talks and new experiences with us. Mark your diaries and grab your tickets!


Winetopia starts with a line-up of incredible wineries who gather to share with you their best drops.


It's a journey of discovery and it's one worth taking. 


We're excited to have Chef Max Gordy joining us serving dishes from his pop-up sensation, Graze! Plus taste mouth-watering food offerings from a selection of award-winning artisans including House of Dumplings, Kapiti Chocolate, Olive Black, The Artisan Hub, Mahurangi Oysters and more to be announced. Rest assured there will be plenty of delicious food to go with your wine finds. 

We've asked some of the most knowledgable wine gurus in Aotearoa to join us for some intimate 40 minute masterclasses. Stephen Wong (Master of Wine), Joelle Thomson (Wine Writer) and many more will be joining us. For a small ticket price, you get a big wine adventure. The team at Sotheby's share our love of fine wine & food! They're also offering a special realty marketing package to all Winetopia visitors. Click here for details.

What to look forward to?

  • Many of the wines this year will be from the incredible 2020 vintage. It was one for the record books, a bumper season for vineyards around the country, despite a difficult Lockdown harvest. This is your chance to try them all!

  • If you've been to Winetopia before you'll know to expect a great line-up of talks and tastings led by wine gurus, fun sommeliers and the odd famous face! This year's line-up will be released soon and will not let you down.

  • Engaging surprises, exciting aesthetics and an atmosphere that is positively electric.  


  • Will each session finish on a crescendo with a live musical act? Why yes, but this is not a jazz quartet in the corner. More like something to blow out the cobwebs... Introducing; The Panic Band!

  • Our Golden Coins proved super popular last year, they're back! Grab yourself some of these and you'll be able to try a fresh line-up of some of the most celebrated wines in the country. These wines are pushing over $100 per bottle at retail and this is your chance to try them.


See you at Winetopia!



"It has become an annual ritual for many wine-loving kiwis to stock up at Winetopia. The energetic yet casual atmosphere allows the space to talk to winemakers (including local legends) and get the hottest takes in the wine world straight from the source."
