This is the sixth event of our 2022 Kinross Harvest Celebration - an annual event in Gibbston, Queenstown that celebrates the close of the wine industry's busiest time of year - the grape harvest. This festival brings together a range of events to celebrate the magic of the world of wine and the fine humans who spend their lives crafting and creating liquid gold.
Wildcard Wines from the Deep South

Join WineFriend co-founder, Dish Magazine Drinks Editor and NZ Herald wine writer, Yvonne Lorkin, as she leads us on an ultra-tasty, tiki-tour of exciting, unexpected varieties from our local heroes. She’ll highlight hidden gems that’ll blow Central Otago's one-trick Pinot myth out of the water. Think Gamay, St Laurent, Tempranillo, Cabernet Franc and a smorgasbord of other award-winning styles that’ll uncover the incredible diversity of our region. Want to broaden your wine horizons? Here’s how to do it!
