Harvest the focus this weekend

The Cliffs in Carterton are playing host to the Wairarapa Wines Harvest Festival this weekend.

This event is a celebration of the start of the 2024 grape harvest season. It is made up of different wineries and food vendors, as well as a new curated wine-tasting experience called Wine Geek 101.

This new event starts before the main festival party begins, and is an opportunity to taste eight of the more experimental wines, while at the same time quizzing the people who made them. Feel free to ask them what the secret is.

The event has an adjacent site for people with motorhomes to park. It is licenced, so an adult must accompany anyone under the age of 18.

General admission is $69 each, but anyone under the age of four can get in free.

Saturday, February 17, 11am to 5pm, The Cliffs, Dakins Road, Carterton.
