After a two-year hiatus, Wairarapa’s renowned food and wine festival Toast Martinborough, will return this year.

Toast organisers said they hoped to attract 8500 festival-goers to Martinborough and wider Wairarapa to celebrate the region’s award-winning winemakers and vineyards.

General manager Ariel Codde said food and wine enthusiasts should act quickly to secure tickets.

“Toast is an amazing day that combines outstanding wines and superb food, mixed with fabulous live entertainment.”

She said the 2022 event would combine seven festival locations and eight wineries with food from local chefs and restaurants.

The line-up would also include bands performing throughout the day-long festival.

Festival-goers could expect the official programme to be launched in September.

Destination Wairarapa general manager Anna Nielson said Toast was a key date in the region’s event calendar.

“After two years since the last Toast, there’s a lot of demand for one of the country’s best wine and food festivals.

“We’re excited to welcome visitors back to the region and showcase our amazing vineyards and local winemakers on what’s sure to be a fun day out.”

WellingtonNZ marketing and communications general manager Todd Barberel said it would be a welcome boost to the entire Wellington region.

“Toast is the perfect way to kick off summer and sees many visitors from the city and beyond visit Martinborough.

“We’re thrilled to be partnered with and welcome the festival back and support Wairarapa’s talented winemakers and hospitality providers.”

The event will take place on Sunday, November 20. Tickets are on sale now.
