The official annual wine tasting event is back at the Boathouse Nelson venue this year, and after selling out last year we're recommending you don't delay grabbing your tickets. The weather in Nelson Tasman delivered the perfect ripening conditions for what proved to be a stunning 2020 vintage . Always a very popular two hours, you'll taste some of the finest wine produced in one of New Zealand's most inspired wine regions accompanied by great gourmet treats and (back by popular demand,) the epic Bryce Wastney and his acoustic music.
“The only event which sees virtually all of Nelson's wine producers gathered under one roof in a stunning yet informal setting - a Nelson speciality. Always a fun occasion, this is the perfect occasion to get to know how we put the Nelson lifestyle and sunshine in a bottle! Will the dolphins swim by to greet us again this year?” - Paul Miles, Riwaka River Estate
Make the most of this opportunity to meet your local, award-winning winemakers and taste the excellent wines from across the Nelson Tasman region.
Have a taste of all that is excellent about NZ wine, as the region produces a range of varieties exceptionally well across the two quite distinct sub wine regions of The Plains and The Hills with their own sub-climates and terroir. We're home to NZ's Champion White Wine (Seifried Estate Sauvignon Blanc) alongside some of New Zealand's most inspired award-winning wines, producing outstanding Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and aromatics, as well as an impressive mix of emerging varieties.
