About Wellington

Celebrated as New Zealand’s creative and culinary capital, Wellington is a cosmopolitan city with an energetic personality. Its waterfront will be the home of Pinot Noir NZ 2017.

It has been named on BBC’s Hottest Cities and Rough Guide’s Top 10 Cities for 2015, labelled the ‘coolest little capital in the world’ by Lonely Planet, and referred to as a ‘locavore’s dream’ by Vogue.

Wellington is loved for its dining culture, accessible waterfront, city markets, and some of the best coffee and craft beer on the planet. It is home to more than 55 galleries and museums, has a compact walkable city centre, and a vibrant street culture.

Discover all this first hand during your time in Wellington, New Zealand. Whilst walking between the diverse venues for Pinot Noir NZ 2017, enjoy the sculpture and poetry along the waterfront. And, if your schedule allows, add some time on to your trip so you can enjoy the galleries, live performances, and abundance of bike and walking trails.

Better still, make this event the cornerstone of your New Zealand itinerary, and explore some other parts of the country – be it our stunning wine regions, our world-class golf courses, or heavenly fishing spots.
