This event has probably been and gone!
Come and explore the wonderful world of New Zealand wine.
Taste stunning wines from over 80 wineries and try exceptional food from Euro Restaurant’s new Executive Chef – Gareth Stewart. Hear what our restaurateurs and sommeliers are drinking and meet some international wine gurus too. It all takes place on Queen’s Wharf in the iconic Shed 10 with music and entertainment to keep you entertained.
Wine AKL operates on a philosophy that everyone has a favourite wine and our job is to help you find yours. Even our resident DJ, Murray Sweetpants, is more than qualified, once ticking over 101 cellar doors in a year (don’t miss the run down on his favourites on Saturday night in Wine 101). Did we mention that even our dancers are wine obsessed? Getting to grips with a great bouquet and wine-fuelled passion from the lofty perspective of the top of a barrel… it’s all here at Wine AKL!
A delicious element of Wine AKL is the masterclasses in the Connoisseurs Lounge, present by Delonghi, and hosted by kiwi and international wine experts - including Nick Stock (AUS), Jorge Nunes (Portugal) Bob Campbell MW (NZ) and Yvonne Lorkin (NZ). Explore rich flavours from around the world plus the stars of our gorgeous homegrown vineyards.
Grab your partners, friends and family and discover your favourite wine while having a great time. Wine AKL is part of Restaurant Month in the Heart of the City, so why not tag on a special menu to your day and literally make a meal of it?
Entry tickets are just $25 in advance and include your tasting glass, a wine guide and your first 5 tastings. Get yours before they sell out. Salut!
