New Zealand Wine Festival Guide 2020

NZ Wine Festival Guide 2020

Wine festivals are a great way to discover new wineries and to meet the maker of your favourite tipple. Here in New Zealand we’re lucky that almost every wine region puts on a wine festival by now, showcasing a great selection of regional wine and produce.

We’ve put together a New Zealand Wine Festival Guide for you to make sure you don’t miss any of them over the coming season.

F.A.W.C. Winter 2015

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.

How much?
$5 offerings with none over $50 per person.

Buy them here.

Not so much of a winter person? Then save the date for Summer F.A.W.C.
November 6th to 15th 2015!
