Winetopia is back! With more than 50 of New Zealand’s best wineries offering up a full schedule of tastings, talks and new experiences. It’s time once again to dive into the vinous wonderland that is Winetopia.

Get up close and personal to our unique 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. 

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.

Winetopia is a wonderful occasion to meet with like-minded wine lovers and while the wine itself is taken very seriously, visitors are also invited to “Share A Glass” with great personalities at the event. This year that includes celebrated musician Laughton Kora (KORA, L.A.B.), actress Antonia Prebble and comedian Ben Hurley.

Winetopia is arranged by region so you can explore Northland before working your way down to Central Otago, chatting with wine makers as you go while trying their wines, and you can purchase wines on the day to take home with you.

So grab your friends and get ready for the biggest wine tasting event in New Zealand – Winetopia!

Visitors to this year’s Winetopia events will be able to sample some of the first new 2020 white wines and winemakers are bringing some of their latest red releases as well.

Tickets start at just $45 including $10 worth of tasting tokens, a Spiegelau glass, talks, entertainment and live music to finish. Golden Coins, Masterclasses and Wine Blind tickets are sold separately.
