Countdown to Toast Martinborough

Countdown to Toast Martinborough

With all participating wineries featuring fabulous food to accompany Martinborough’s celebrated wines with the sounds of great bands and singers, it will be the perfect way to spend a spring day.

Each participating winery establishes its own style and personality with its wine and food, and the choice of entertainment is especially important.

This year, rising star Conway Jeune appears at Palliser while at Ata Rangi Don McGlashan, singer/songwriter of legendary band The Mutton Birds, will entertain alongside the popular Nairobi Trio.

Crowd favourites Nudge, the Warratahs, Ray Woolf and The Beat Girls are back at Martinborough Vineyard, Vynfields, Margrain and Palliser respectively, while Soul Estate with Lisa Tomlins and Supermodel are making their first Toast appearance at Te Kairanga.

All musical tastes are covered, for easy listening, cool jazz or hot rock.
