Despite the rather strange name, F.A.W.C. or Food and Wine Classic Hawke’s Bay, has become a great institution in New Zealand’s oldest wine region and is certainly a highlight of the wine festival calendar.
After sold out summer events, F.A.W.C winter is the “hot and slightly cheeky little sister, wrapped in fur sitting by a well-stoked fire”, according to the organisers.
If you’re in the Bay during June or feel like a field trip, here is what you need to know:
June 5th to 28th
For the entire month of June, an array of Hawke’s Bays finest restaurants, cafes and bars will be serving special Winter F.A.W.C! menu selections. Download the full programme here.
$5 offerings with none over $50 per person.
