North Canterbury Wine and Food Festival

North Canterbury’s Hottest event


It’s the hottest event on the North Canterbury social calendar and this year is no different, with the North Canterbury Wine and Food Festival set to bring some seasonal sizzle to the tail end of summer.

On Sunday 10 March, Waipara Valley’s Glenmark Domain will be hitting the social sweet spot, as thousands pack it to the brim with fun and festivities.  In fact, the organisers of this North Canterbury gem have a little habit of making things bigger and better every year, with this year’s event proving no exception. For 2019, three new elements are being introduced, along with food and wine galore – the Long Lunch, Meet The Makers and a festival High Tea.

Seated at long tables under the oaks, the Long Lunch will feature four small courses of seasonal delights, from the finest local chefs, paired with four North Canterbury wine tastes. The ultimate laidback way to experience the flavours of the region, culinary favourites Inati, Jonny Schwass and Barrys Bay Cheese will be pleasing palates

You’re in it for the wine and food – and we get that – but this year with the help of Rekindle, you can get into a bit of ‘making’ under the Glenmark Oaks too. Meet the makers and have a go with whittling techniques, rope and string making, and doll making workshops.

At this year’s inaugural High Tea, gourmet blends from Nobel and Savage Tea Merchants will be paired with homemade baking from Glenmark Parish in a fabulous fundraiser for the local church, where the festival began 25 years ago! Expect vintage linens, floral china and a slice of slow living.

The North Canterbury Wine Festival has thought of everything – even transport! Why not take a bus to the festival, so you can chill and enjoy all the good stuff on offer? Bus transport is available to and from the festival from Hanmer Springs, as well as from Christchurch and Lincoln.

The coolest little wine festival in the country.

Set under the picturesque oaks of Glenmark Domain in Waipara Valley, the festival is back next weekend Sunday 11 March to celebrate the local bounty of the flourishing region on Christchurch’s very own back doorstep.
This year headline chef, food writer, executive owner and chef of Homestead and Company Sam Mannering will be cooking up a storm. Proudly raised in Canterbury, Sam is returning to his favourite region to create a dish that has North Canterbury written all over it.
What makes Sam’s homecoming even cooler? He’ll be donating 100 percent of the proceeds made from his stall on the day to festival charity partner, Māia Health Foundation.
Festival attendees can also donate to Māia Health Foundation to help fundraise for a bigger, better rooftop helipad at Christchurch Hospital to ensure faster emergency treatment – a cause close to the hearts of those in the region, with 100 rescue helicopters call outs from Canterbury between Feb 2016 and June 2017 alone.
Alongside Sam, notable foodies and wineries attending include Black Estate, The Bone Line, Pegasus Bay, Greystone Wines, Cakes by Anna, Grizzly Baked Goods, Jonny Schwass, Kaikoura Cheese, Anteater, Bearlion foods, Utopia Ice, Sweet & Savage, while headline band The Eastern will be on hand to make your Sunday super special.
Tickets: Adult $30, sober drivers $15, under 18s free. For more information visit www.ncwineandfood.co.nz.
