Toast Martinborough Wine Food Music Fest 21/11/10

Sunday 21 November 2010

Toast Martinborough Wine Food & Music Festival


Now in its 19th year, Toast Martinborough is the annual showcase of quality wine produced in the award winning region.

Held on the third Sunday in November, the festival sees the population of the small Wairarapa town swell tenfold as wine and food lovers from throughout the country and internationally come to celebrate the release of the new vintage and enjoy New Zealand’s premium wine, food and music festival.

Each of the participating vineyards features a selection of new and limited release wines superbly matched to culinary delights from Wellington and the Wairarapa’s top restaurants, and accompanied by some of New Zealand’s finest live entertainment.

With most of the largely boutique vineyards located within walking distance of each other, the festival provides a unique opportunity to sample some of the world’s best wines within a charming wine village atmosphere.

Tickets on sale 6 October through Ticketek. Alternatively, join Friends of Martinborough for preferential booking options.
