Biggest-ever Winter F.A.W.C! programme announced for 2019

24 April 2019

The highly anticipated F.A.W.C! Food and Wine Classic Winter 2019 programme launched this week, featuring 65+ delectable events spanning four action-packed June weekends in Hawke’s Bay.

Returning for its seventh year, this year’s Winter F.A.W.C! programme is the biggest yet, boasting top local chefs, winemakers and foodies, all collaborating to produce a diverse range of dishes and experiences, staged in stunning locations across the region.

Event prices range from $30 to $2,000 and include everything from champagne and whisky weekends at Cape Kidnappers to Fat Freddy’s Drop and food at Black Barn Vineyards, vegetarian feasts, international cuisine, world-class wine, and mid-winter parties.

Among many other highlights are the talented newcomers to F.A.W.C! – Caution Dining Lounge, Fairways at Hastings Golf Club, Fieldtrip, Mexi Mama, National Café, Pink Lady® Apples, Smith & Sheth, and Wallingford - all offering exciting events and contributing to the impressively diverse programme.

Revellers can also look forward to an extensive ‘F.A.W.C! by 5’ line-up, with this year’s offering being the largest to date. Special dining deals can be snapped up throughout the month of June - with the cost being in increments of $5 - ranging between $5-$50 at popular cafés, wineries, and restaurants across Hawke’s Bay.

Hawke’s Bay Tourism Acting General Manager, Hamish Saxton, said the organisation is ecstatic to be organising the seventh Winter F.A.W.C!

“This year’s line-up of events is testament to the incredible food, wine and talent we have in Hawke’s Bay. With so many delicious experiences on offer, June is set to be a glorious month of wining and dining in Hawke’s Bay.”

The programme has launched online at www.fawc.co.nz, along with inserts in Hawke’s Bay Today, the New Zealand Herald, and additional copies delivered throughout Wellington, Manawatu, and Taupo.

F.A.W.C! database members will have special pre-sale access to buy tickets from 9am Monday 29 April, with general public sales available from 9am Tuesday 30 April via the F.A.W.C! website.
