If you’ve ever spent New Year’s Eve at Rhythm and Vines, you know how beautiful Waiohika Estate is. Feast Gisborne is one more excellent reason to visit the region. Wine and food are paired with world class entertainment, making for a day you’ll cherish.
Given the region’s stellar wine production, the emphasis is on the wineries and this will be your first opportunity to sample 2013 vintages. Among the many purveyors at the festival don’t miss Hihi Wines (which means “rays of the sun”), a boutique winery with fifty-four award winning wines in just seven years of production. Wrights Vineyard boasts certified organic grapes and minimal additives.
Kiwi cultural touchstones The Exponents will headline, along with funked up AhoriBuzz and Aukland-based indie rock band The Kaleidoscopes. DJ Magik Johnson will round out the day with a techno house dance party.
