TOAST MARTINBOROUGH POSTPONED TILL JANUARY
Premier annual Wairarapa wine and food event Toast Martinborough has been postponed to mid-January 2022.
General Manager of the iconic event, Ariel Codde, says the decision to reschedule it from Sunday 21 November to Sunday 16 January 2022 is based on the risks posed and uncertainty by the Delta variant of Covid-19.
“We are extremely disappointed to have to postpone, but know that it is absolutely the right thing to do, pushing the event out two months enables more time for certainty.” General Manager, Ariel Codde.
We acknowledge that the Government has proposed that for all large events all attendees will need to be vaccinated. While we wait for the Government to provide more detail and guidelines about how to operate under this mandate, we need to remind customers that as Toast Martinborough is a large event this will be part of the requirements to attend the event in January 2022.
It is overwhelming the support from all the vineyard sites, stakeholders, sponsors and our amazing Martinborough village in moving everything to a new date. We look forward to welcoming wine and food lovers to the festival in the New Year for the much anticipated #bestsundayever. One thing’s for sure - bring your sunscreen as well as your taste buds!
