We are really excited to announce that we’re introducing for the first time, a curated wine tasting experience!
Introducing WINE GEEK 101
Love geeking out over wine? Enjoy quizzing winemakers about the winemaking process? Excited to try new wine styles and varieties? Then this is the experience for you!
Before the Harvest Festival party begins, why not ease into the day (and avoid the queues) by joining us first for a relaxed and fascinating curated wine tasting hosted by the people who made it?
The lineup will feature 8 of our more experimental and off the beaten track wines that you may not have tried before.
Each winemaker will give you a ‘look under the bonnet’ of their winemaking approach – showcasing how our local wineries are pushing the boundaries of traditional winemaking.
This tasting will suit every type of wine lover, from the person who takes a notebook to tastings through to the enthusiastic beginner just starting their journey into the wonderful world of wine.
Wine, food & entertainment
Wairarapa’s finest wineries, high profile restaurants, and food producers will showcase their wares set amongst ancient native trees in the Festival’s spectacular riverside setting.
