Toast Martinborough

Best Sunday Ever - Toast Martinborough

Toast Martinborough wished to celebrate Martinborough's wines with visitors to the event in fitting style, without any complications or risk. So, given that so much is still uncertain, they've have made the call to cancel this year's event. Toast Martinborough has pushed pause for 2020 and are coming back bigger and better for 2021.


NZ’s Legendary Wairarapa  wine and food festival Toast Martinborough a back on Sunday 15 November 2020 and promises to be the Best Sunday Ever.

Get ready to eat, drink and be entertained by some of the country's top culinary and  musical talent. Toast has a magic that’s delighted people from around New Zealand and the world for 28 years. It allows people to talk to the wine-makers, taste new releases or locate older vintages. 

At Toast you have the freedom to travel around vineyards on foot or via free Tranzit shuttle buses. Each vineyard is partnered with a great restaurant and musicians to create an atmosphere where you can sip, taste, dance and be happy. 

At the end of the day enjoy a festival party under the trees in the town square with live music.
