It’s time once again to dive into the that vinous wonderland that is Winetopia.
Delve deeper and get up close and personal with our unique wine regions and their most lovingly crafted wines. Try new favourites from the likes of Escarpment, Framingham, Craggy Range, Man O’ War, Greywacke and so many more. Get your hands on the newest wines on the scene right through to soon to be revealed flagships.
This is your chance to immerse yourself in the New Zealand wine scene and celebrate the growers and winemakers that have put this country on the vinous map.
‘Share a Glass’ with famous faces during our free talks and tastings, discover taste buds you never knew you had in our new ‘Wine Blind’ sessions and uncover more about what makes our wines so special with the Winetopia gurus including Joelle Thomson, Bob Campbell MW, Caitlin Perlman and more.
This year we also bring you some of the most prestigious wines in the country. We’ve asked more of our friends to bring along their ultra-premium wines (generally from a very successful vintage and upwards of $100 per bottle) and now you can taste them at the event using our new ‘Golden Coins.’
Tickets to Winetopia go quick each year, possibly something to do with our troop of musicians who send every wine lover off with a grin as wide as the Gimblett Gravels.
Ridiculously Good Value tickets are on sale now for only $35, which includes entry to one session, 5 tasting tokens, a Spiegelau wine glass and free talks and live entertainment.
Central Otago’s acclaimed wine and food will take centre stage in Wānaka next year with the launch of Ripe, a new festival for the region. To be held at Corbridge Estate on Otago Anniversary Weekend 2021.
