Winetopia 2022 dates confirmed, tickets on sale

Live music, freshly prepped food and wine tastings with an emphasis on fun. That’s the aim of Winetopia’s organising committee, which announced that the event will go ahead in 2022, with dates and tickets now available.

The two day event will run in three cities next May, July and August, kicking off in Auckland then heading south to Wellington and culminating in Christchurch. Over 50 wineries  will present the A to S of wine, with everything from Albarino to Syrah confirmed for the 2022 event.

“This is a chance to delve deep into the enchanting world of New Zealand wine in all of its finery. Choose your city, book your tickets, arrive with a thirst for adventure,” says Rob Eliott, owner of Lemongrass Productions and Winetopia.

Yours truly is a presenter and looking forward to hosting an other range of fast and fun blind tastings, masterclasses and other events. This will be the third year running that I have been involved at the Wellington event over the full two days.
