Wine AKL 2014 Kicks Off In 2 WeeksClick Above For More Information
Get up close and personal with New Zealand wines at Wine AKL, presented by Peugeot. Grab your wine-loving friends and taste your way around the country’s wine-growing regions – you can sample and buy wines, including limited releases and new-vintages, from over 60 NZ wineries.
Meet wine pros like Nick Stock (AUS), Shelley Lindgren (USA), Rebecca Gibb (UK) and our own Master of Wine Bob Campbell to find out what they’re drinking and why, plus join some of central Auckland’s favourite restaurateurs and sommeliers for talks on everything from a beginner’s guide to cellaring to how to order wine like a pro and food matching sessions.
Access to all of the Wine 101 and Sophomore Sessions talks is included in your ticket price, with tickets for the Connoisseurs’ Lounge sessions available through iTicket.
Whether you’re a newcomer to wine or a bonafide aficionado, Auckland’s new flagship wine tasting event will be one to remember.
