Sell-Out Success for Toast Martinborough

All 10,000 tickets to this year’s Toast Martinborough wine and food festival have been sold.

In what has become an annual tradition, festival-goers from around New Zealand and the world quickly snapped up all available tickets when they went on sale this morning. Organisers are delighted with the response, which clearly demonstrates the continuing popularity of this iconic event.

“For the past 20 years Toast Martinborough has delivered a world-class festival experience – superb wines, delicious food and outstanding entertainment in New Zealand’s most picturesque wine village,” says Rachael Fletcher, Toast Martinborough General Manager.

“Past experience shows us that four out of five festival goers this year will have been to Toast Martinborough at least once before. We look forward to welcoming them back, and providing newcomers with a fantastic experience that they’ll treasure for years to come.”

The Toast Martinborough festival will be held on Sunday 18 November.
