New Zealand's National Wine Celebration Returns to the Viaduct Events Centre This Winter

Published: Friday 12 April, 2024


Tickets to the national wine showcase event Winetopia are now on sale to the general public! Now in it’s 9th year, Winetopia is the largest annual gathering of wineries from all around New Zealand. The event features colourful local and international personalities on the event stages, pop-up eateries and a chance to taste some of the most celebrated wines in New Zealand. Winetopia takes place at TSB Arena in Wellington from 7 – 8 June and Viaduct Events Centre in Auckland from 26 – 27 July.

Some of the new initiatives at Winetopia this year include:

  • Vivid Dining – an immersive food and wine matching experience that will change your perceptions.
  • The Dream Room – a collection of rare and celebrated vintages where we ask “What does it take to make a wine people go crazy over?”
  • Premium Ticket holders will enjoy an enhanced experience in the lounge, with added complimentary coat check and tastings.

Previous visitors to Winetopia will look forward to returning attractions such as:

  • Talks, tastings & entertainment on the Main Stage.
  • Golden Coins - a chance to try some of the most awarded wines in the country costing over $100 at retail.
  • Pop-up eateries and artisanal food producers.
  • Wines from some incredible vintages across the country in the past few years will all be open for tasting and for purchase, with people being able to order direct from the producers.
  • Live music to close each session.

Tickets have just gone on sale to the public (9.00am Tuesday 9 April). General Admission starts at $45 plus booking fee which includes a Spiegelau glass, 5 tasting tokens, access to all wineries, main stage talks and entertainment. Premium Tickets (from $89 plus Booking fee) also includes fast track entry, premium NZ Cuvee on arrival (60ml) a Winetopia tote bag and entry to the Premium Lounge. Within the lounge is a complimentary coat check, wine tasting and view of the Main Stage entertainment.

This year every ticket order will enter the visitor into the draw to win a pair of tickets to the “Dream Room Masterclass” - a tasting of some very special and aged wines run by a Winetopia wine guru.
Winetopia is organised by Lemongrass Productions and sponsors include You Travel and Spiegelau.
