Toast Martinborough Tickets Soon on Sale

Tickets to one of New Zealand’s most popular wine, food and music festivals will go on sale at 9am on Wednesday 2 October.

Toast Martinborough once again promises to be a great day out for the 10,000 people lucky enough to buy the highly sought-after tickets. To be held on Sunday 17 November, it’s become a ‘must do’ event on New Zealand’s social calendar.

Eleven of Martinborough’s boutique vineyards will be open for wine tastings on the day, with each wine carefully matched with fine food prepared by some of the region’s top restaurateurs and caterers. Completing the experience: music to suit every mood, from jazz and blues to pop and rock.

“Wine connoisseurs will be delighted to hear that Dry River – one of the pioneers of Martinborough’s wine industry – is joining our world-class line-up,” says Rachael Fletcher, Toast Martinborough General Manager. “What’s more, it’s partnered with five-star luxury lodge The Farm at Cape Kidnappers, which has a fantastic reputation for its delicious cuisine.”

The other 10 participating vineyards are Alana Estate, Ata Rangi Vineyard, Escarpment Vineyard, Margrain Vineyard, Martinborough Vineyard/Burnt Spur Vineyard, Muirlea Rise, Palliser Estate, Te Kairanga Wines, Tirohana Estate and Vynfields.

Fletcher advises hopefuls that tickets sell out quickly.

“Last year they were snapped up within hours, and for a very good reason,” she says. “Toast Martinborough provides festival-goers with a unique experience – an opportunity to relax in some of New Zealand’s most picturesque vineyards, taste more than 70 superb wines, sample more than 100 delectable dishes and dance to more than 22 live performances. It’s no wonder that so many choose to come back year after year.”

Tickets will be available at 0800 TICKETEK or, and a limited number of special Air New Zealand flight and ticket packages will be sold through from 9am.
