Explore Embrace Evolve


Pinot Noir NZ has fast become one of the best pinot noir events on the planet. This celebration brings together the very wines, people and places that benchmark New Zealand pinot noir.

Immerse yourself in New Zealand’s pinot scene over three action-packed days in spectacular tasting venues along the Wellington City waterfront, where some of the world’s greatest authorities on pinot noir will be presenting their take on New Zealand pinot noir – now and in the future.

Kiwi pinot noir producers have a reputation for revelry and risk-taking, which is why we only allow them out once every four years, to share their stories, to pour their wines and to show fans of pinot noir a rocking great time.

Clear your calendar, book your tickets and join us – 31st January – 2nd February 2017
