Pinot Noir NZ Public Tasting and Day Pass tickets on sale


Pinot Noir NZ 2013 Public Tasting and Day Pass tickets go on sale

With just over six weeks until the biggest event on the New Zealand wine calendar the public tasting and day passes have gone on sale for Pinot Noir NZ 2013. There are also a few full delegate registrations remaining.

Wednesday 30th January will be the evening Pinot Noir NZ 2013 opens its doors to Pinot lovers for a casual tasting of wines from New Zealand's five Pinot producing regions. It will be the opportunity to meet the country’s best winemakers and try over 100 of our best Pinot Noirs, many of which are no longer available in the marketplace. The organisers anticipate a full house on the famous Wellington Waterfront.

The following day, Thursday 31st January, is the final day or climax of the four day event. It will start with a keynote address from international Pinot Noir expert Jasper Morris MW, lead into a Burgundy tasting, to be followed by a New Zealand Pinot Noir Grand Tasting and end with The Great Pinot Party – a fitting final evening for the calibre of the event.

The Culinary Programme is also taking shape with Ruth Pretty and her team putting finishing touches on menus that will tell the New Zealand regional story alongside the vast range of wines we are showcasing.

“We’re so excited about the depth and breadth of the programme for Pinot Noir NZ 2013. We’ve a top line up of international speakers and I know the regional programmes and tastings will be amazing thanks to all the work the regions themselves have put in” said Pinot Noir NZ 2013 chair Alastair Maling.

“Pinot Noir NZ 2013 in six weeks’ time is the culmination of three years of work. It will be a time to take stock of where we are as an industry, and where we are heading. We know people will walk away with a better understanding of New Zealand Pinot and its place in the international world of fine wine. Much will be said and written and recorded as a result of those four days, but nothing will compare with actually being there.”

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs.

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides.
