Everything you need to know about Wine AKL 2015

Do you like wine? Good.

On Friday 14 and Saturday 15 August 2015, 80 of NZ’s top wineries will converge across the two floors of Shed 10 for Wine AKL. Wineries will be grouped by region so it will be like taking a little roadtrip vineyard tour of the country. Bottles of wine will be available for purchase and there will be a DJ, dancers and food from Euro available. Check out Euro’s festival menu here.

Tickets are $25 plus booking fee and includes a tasting glass, the first five tastings and a wine guide. This event is strictly R18. There are 3 sessions:
Session 1. Friday 14 August 2015, 5:00pm – 8:30pm
Session 2. Saturday 15 August 2015, 12:00pm – 3:30pm
Session 3. Saturday 15 August 2015, 4:30pm – 8:00pm

For those with a thirst for some extra wine knowledge, there are 9 masterclasses which are $20 per class on top of your entry ticket.
