So, what is Budburst all about?
Budburst aims to bring together everyday consumers in a friendly and festive environment where they can try unique wines that challenge the status quo and celebrate transparency, sustainability and quality. This one day event will bring together New Zealand wine producers who are pushing boundaries and some international winemakers who share the same sentiment of keeping intervention at a minimum.
What’s happening on the day?
The cafe area of Prefab will be transformed into a pop-up natural wine bar. This will allow people from all walks of life to experience natural wine in the context of honest food and live music. The adjoining function space will host natural wine producers from both New Zealand and around the world who will be pouring their wines and allowing for producers and consumers to engage with each other. The function space will be complemented by a variety of short, interactive workshops so that consumers can learn about these new styles of wine.
Why you should support the initiative? What in it for you?
By supporting Budburst you can get tickets to the full festival at the lowest possible price. In addition to these discount tickets the organisers are offering a number of amazing experience packages. A glass of wine on us can be claimed by people in Auckland, Wellington, Blenheim, Christchurch and Queenstown. Branded glassware, posters, stickers and other swag can be delivered to wherever you are. If you can make it to Martinborough you can be a winemaker’s assistant for the day.
