The Northland Food & Wine Festival 2022

Enjoy delicious Northland wines and food in the stunning surrounds of the Karikari Peninsula this Anniversary Weekend at the inaugural Northland Food & Wine Festival!

Local vineyards will be joined at Carrington Estate by our artisan producers, food trucks and fantastic music, including the chill reggae sounds of SUNSHINE SOUND SYSTEM and one of our favourite party bands, HANDS OFF.

SUNSHINE SOUND SYSTEM has been smashing shows the length of NZ since 2000, with their trademark sound system-style celebration of hip-hop, reggae/dub, dancehall, original skool soul and funk. Known for their popular Friday Drive show on Base FM, Downtown Brown and KP will provide the perfect sounds for a hot summer vibe.

HANDS OFF are one of New Zealand’s best loved covers bands and proved to be a massive hit at Far North events such as the Kerikeri Street Party in recent years. These musicians know how to get the dancefloor pumping.

With the announcement that Northland can finally move to orange, we are delighted to be able to hold events again” said organiser Jackie Sanders. “This is great news for our local suppliers, vineyards, foodies, the artists and all of us looking to celebrate.”

Northland Food & Wine Festival is the first of a series of summer events announced for Carrington Estate, that also includes reggae, a Waitangi Day Festival and Valentines themed night.

All events held will follow government guidelines in relation to live events and vaccine passports. In the event of cancellation due to any COVID-19 related restriction, ticketholders will be refunded in full from point of purchase.

Howard Davis: Joel Coen's Monochromatic Macbeth

The Bard of Avon may well be smirking up the sleeves of his lace doublet at the irony of Will Smith's Oscar debacle, but now that the initial furore has dissipated, it's worth revisiting the movie for which Denzel Washington was also nominated. More>>

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

Branagh has assembled a wonderful cast, including Ciarán Hinds, a gently formidable actor who well deserves his Oscar nomination, and Judi Dench, who steals every scene she’s in. More>>

Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>

Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
