We’re back from sold out events in Japan, Perth and Adelaide and are ready to kick off the New Zealand leg of the tour in Christchurch. We’re coming in hot with an epic lineup of pinot (obviously), food and more. Here’s all your 2019 highlights!
ONE EPIC LINEUP
Let’s get straight to it. Here’s your lineup for 2019!
Headlined by some People’s Choice faves, we’re pretty excited about these wines. There will more than 100 wines on offer so you better come in with a plan. And remember, all wine tastes are included. No bloody tokens!FULL WINE LIST
Australia is a BIG country so, as you can imagine, the styles of pinot noir that you find here are as varied and diverse as the people themselves. There’s light and ethereal examples from the Yarra Valley, fuller flavoured from Mornington, super fresh styles from Tasmania, the wildness of the Adelaide Hills and everything else in between.
Australian pinot noir has never been better and, with around 15 different regions producing excellent quality examples, there is much to explore.
Which is why we’re again bringing you the LIVE AUSTRALIA stand to Christchurch for the first time. Here you’ll get to try a range of wines that we recon are pretty bloody cool and worth seeking out. In fact, many aren’t even available in NZ!
