Pinot Noir NZ 2013: Fine Wine, Fine Cuisine…and in Wellington!


Pinot Noir NZ 2013 is a four day international event that celebrates and showcases their finest wine to the glitterati of the wine world.

More than this however, Pinot Noir NZ 2013 tells the story of our great wine by matching it with their finest cuisine and homegrown entertainment all against the backdrop of Wellington’s picturesque waterfront.

And this year the story is enhanced by creating New Zealand’s recognised Pinot Noir regions at different venues in and around the central ‘hub’ of the event at Odlin’s Plaza.  This focus on regionality is the cornerstone of Pinot Noir NZ 2013.

And within the multiple events that make up Pinot Noir NZ 2013 there are some great opportunities for the public to get involved – to come along and rub shoulders with our 100 top winemakers (and their wine, of course) and some of the most formidable wine critics from around the world.

The Pinot Noir NZ 2013 Public Tasting

Picture our top 100 Pinot Noir producers all in the same place at the same time – and all pouring their best Pinot.  This is what the Pinot Noir NZ 2013 Public Tasting is all about and is an event that gives the public a rare opportunity to taste our best of breed Pinots in a convivial environment.

Where:  The Pinot Noir NZ 2013 Marquee, Odlin’s Plaza, Wellington Waterfront
