Winetopia 2021 comes to Auckland
Over 60 of New Zealand’s best wineries are coming to Shed 10 on June 18th and 19th.
The golden rule of wine purchasing is “TRY BEFORE YOU BUY”. Winetopia lets you do just that. Around 300 different wines are available to taste. If you have any questions representatives from each winery are there to answer them. It’s a shopping spree, a wine education course and a party all rolled into one.Other wine experts at Winetopia include Master of Wine Jane Skilton and Master Sommelier Cameron Douglas.
I will attend all three sessions. I plan to run several masterclass wine tastings and host a number of more informal tastings. Look for my distinctive white Panama hat if you have any questions or want me to recommend a wine or wine producer. Other wine experts at Winetopia include Master of Wine Jane Skilton and Master Sommelier Cameron Douglas.
This year Winetopia have introduced Gaggenau Sommelier Sessions. Now you can “step inside the mind of a sommelier” and taste some of their favourite wines. Super-chef Des Harris will demonstrate tantalising food matches in the Gaggenau Kitchen.
Buy Golden Coins for access to super-serious wine including some worth over NZD $100 a bottle from top producers including Stonecroft, Rockburn, Bald Hills, Fromm, Villa Maria, Esk Valley, Elephant Hill, Craggy Range, Escarpment, Pisa Range, Longview Estate, Tony Bish, Quartz Reef, Moana Park and Nockie’s Palette. Gold Coins are an add-on when purchasing your entry ticket.
