Win A Double Pass to Winetopia 2021

Winetopia is back in Wellington, Auckland - and now Christchurch too! We have a double pass to give away for wine lovers wherever you are in New Zealand


Winetopia is as good as it sounds - a utopia for lovers of good wine. Explore tastes and blends of wine from around the country, with a spotlight on the creators behind the bottles.

At Winetopia 2021, you'll have the chance to try wines from every major region in New Zealand, from Central Otago to Northland. You'll also find many names from Martinborough - the small village neighbouring the capital that's bringing some of the best wine in the country to the table.

Many of the wines are from the 2020 vintage, which was one for the record books, a bumper harvest despite the difficulties of lockdown. Try a Tony Bish Chardonnay (which is made in a large concrete egg); take a trip around the North Island with Villa Maria, sample a Wooing Tree Pinot Noir or a Rockburn Pinot Noir; perhaps you've always wanted a taste of Astrolabe, or if you're heading to the Auckland Winetopia, you're ready for a taste of an award-winning aromatic like the Johanneshof Gewürztraminer.

There are plenty of artisan producers on hand to match with your wine finds, as well as masterclasses from top Kiwi wine experts Cameron Douglas and Bob Campbell, plus sommelier sessions where you'll get the chance to step inside the mind of a sommelier and taste some of their favourite wines. 

Winetopia this year takes place at the following:

Wellington: 21-22 May, TSB Arena

Auckland: 18-19 June, Shed 10

Christchurch: 9-10 July, Air Force Museum of New Zealand

We have a double pass of General Admission tickets to give away to any one of the three events. Your ticket includes five tasting tokens, a free Spiegelau glass, plus access to over 50 top wineries, the opportunity to try amazing food and wine pairings, expert-led blind wine tasting experience, live music and more.
