The Greatest Celebration of New Zealand Wine is back! Following on from the sold-out success in Auckland, Winetopia presented by Singapore Airlines is making its’ exciting debut in Wellington.

Winetopia aims to help you unlock the diverse world of NZ wine, ensuring you have a great time while you’re doing it. It’s your opportunity to try hundreds of wines and meet the makers from wineries from all regions across New Zealand, and once you’ve found the one you love, you can buy direct, making this a great way to stock up for winter.

Wine Tasting:
Journey through New Zealand’s stunning wine regions, with 37 amazing wineries from Northland to Central Otago, sample all the Hawkes Bay, Martinborough and Marlborough wines in-between. From the prestigious pioneering brands to the cheeky boutiques – and every NZ varietal represented.

Food:
Mouth-watering food offerings include cheeses from Food Snob, dumplings from House of Dumplings, cured meat from The Prodigal Daughter and tasty hot sandwiches from The Dukes of Sandwich.

Free Talks, Tastings & Masterclasses:
Top personalities from some of the city’s leading restaurants, and NZ Wineries will be on hand to lead you beyond the glass: Josh Pointon (Noble Rot Wine Bar), Kate Hutchison (Capitol Restaurant), Matthew Bocock (WBC) and Simon Waghorn (Astrolabe). They’ll be joined by NZ Master’s of Wine Bob Campbell and Stephen Wong, to dive deeper into the joys of wine with dedicated Masterclasses.

Nothing goes with a fine wine like good company. At Winetopia you can join renowned comedian, Brendhan Lovegrove, as he “Shares a Glass” with some cool and fascinating characters: TV presenter Mark Sainsbury, Editor of The Dominion Post Bernadette Courtney, Garage Project’s Jos Ruffell, musician and a founding member of The Phoenix Foundation Samuel Flynn Scott, and Wellington hospitality legend Lorenzo Bresolin. Share a taste of their favourite drop, with a splash of humour along the way.

Live Music:
To ensure you have the best time whilst at Winetopia, there is a special treat to close-out each session – a live set by Hopetoun Brown. These guys really know how to close the party in style, with an electric mix of jazz, blues, a touch of rock and roll, with a pinch of country.

Win a Trip to Paris With Singapore Airlines:
Explore France, one of Singapore Airlines lead destinations, with dedicated French wine tastings by Master of Wine Bob Campbell and the chance for all event attendees to enter to win return flights to Paris for 2 flying Singapore Airlines (enter at the event).
