The New World Wine & Food Festival is a celebration of the South Island regions recent acceptance as the New Zealand representative on the prestigious Great Wine Capitals Global Network.
Fifty of the leading wineries from Central Otago, Canterbury, Waipara, Nelson, and Marlborough will be selected to showcase their wines, and they will be joined by a selection of wines each year from one of the other eight Great Wine Capitals of the World to create a truly unique wine event. This year Mainz | Rheinhessen in Germany will be present which is home to more than 3500 wine growers.
Wine seminars and cooking displays hosted by industry experts will be a prominent part of the festival, and more than 30 gourmet food vendors, representing some of the South Island’s leading chefs and restaurateurs, will be on site to provide the perfect compliment. With live entertainment from some of New Zealand’s leading musicians, The New World Wine & Food Festival is a great way to start the summer festive season.
