Wine and food event returns to Wellington waterfront

Written by 

The summer celebration of food, wine, craft beer and cider that is the Wellington Wine & Food Festival will return to Waitangi Park for 2018.

The festival, which features pop-up menus from a hand-picked selection of top local restaurants, wineries from across the country, along with craft beer and cider, is scheduled for Saturday 27 January at the popular waterfront park.

Organisers Arada Promotions are excited to be able to bring the festival back after inclement weather caused the cancelation of the final two sessions of 2017’s event.

“We had such an awesome session on the Friday night in 2017, so it was really disappointing to have to cancel Saturday’s sessions because of the weather,” says Arada’s Damien Hochberg. “We’ve made some great changes this year, and we reckon these will add to an ever better experience for everyone that comes along."

Festival-goers will be treated to a longer session, running from 12pm – 8pm, more food and wine options, along with top notch musical entertainment from a quality line-up that will be announced in the coming weeks.

Tickets, including a popular VIP option, are currently on sale, with options starting at $34.90 including three wine tasters.
