Celebrating Kiwi Women in Wine

Join in celebrating accomplished female wine makers of New Zealand!

Here is your chance to meet and hear from four all-star, award-winning winemakers and taste the wines of these highly respected wineries from the country’s wine regions – Hawke’s Bay, Martinborough, Marlborough and Central Otago.

Women in Wine NZ helps women reach their full potential, step up into leadership roles and encourages businesses within the industry to assess their diversity and inclusion culture.

The evening begins with a welcome reception in Bellini Bar – a Huia Sparkling Brut Rosé on arrival, snacks, and live opera, before adjourning to FISH Restaurant for a four course, eight wine pairing dinner. The dinner will be MC’d by Cusine Magazine Editor, Kelli Brett, as we hear about the wines and stories from the wine makers.

In the kitchen, Giada Grilli (Head Chef at Skycity Auckland) is teaming up with Des Harris (Hilton Auckland’s Culinary Director) and his female kitchen brigade. Together, these two culinary maestros have designed an exquisite four course menu along with snacks for the event.
