Pinot Palooza, the annual pinot noir festival, is touring Auckland, Christchurch, Wellington, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and even Singapore.
Taste top drops from some of the finest pinot producers in Australia and New Zealand while chowing down on a delectable food line-up. There’s 250 wines to try from more than 100 wineries from the likes of Curly Flat (Macedon), Pegasus Bay (Waipara) and Ata Rangi (Martinborough).
Perfect pinot pairing food will be on offer from some of each city’s best restaurants – think charcuteries, cheese and grilled meats.
Should you need a palate cleanser in between pinot tasting, Sample Brewing, Young Henry’s, Stone & Wood beers, frosé, cider and more will be on tap.
All wine tastings and a take-home crystal Plumm RedB wine glass are included in the ticket price (AU$65/NZ$60). There’s also VIP tickets available with exclusive perks, access to the VIP area, food vouchers and more.
