NZ’s most popular food and wine festival. Toast has a magic that’s attracted people from around New Zealand and the world for over 20 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.
