Tickets are officially on sale for the annual Bridge Pa Wine Festival on Saturday, 20 January 2018.
The day long festival features eight wineries as well as food and local entertainment at each one. Wineries include Abbey Estate, Alpha Domus, Ash Ridge, Ngatarawa, Oak Estate, Paritua, Redmetal Vineyards and Sileni Estates, each with wine tastings, food and local entertainment.
The Bridge Pa Triangle Wine District extends over more than 2,000 hectares on the western side of the Heretaunga Plains in Hawke’s Bay. It is characterised by three different soil types, each free draining, overlying red metal alluvial gravels, which are recognised for producing some of New Zealand’s top red wines.
Buses will operate connections between each of the wineries in the Bridge Pa Triangle throughout the day, allowing festival goers to visit as many wineries as they choose. Each of the wineries is located less than five minutes’ drive apart.
“We are thrilled to present this annual event to wine lovers in the region – and visitors – once again. With eight mini festivals in one, what better way to spend a day out with friends or visit the region during Wellington’s anniversary weekend,” says festival spokesperson Paul Ham.
The 2018 Bridge Pa Wine Festival begins at 10am and finishes at 6pm. Tickets are available from Eventfinda from $38 per person and include access to all wineries, a festival glass and use of the hop on/ hop off buses throughout the day. Tickets are also available from Napier, Taradale, Havelock North and Hastings with transport beginning at 9.30am from each of the areas.
