Ripe 2024: the Wanaka wine and food festival

Glendhu Bay, Wanaka will be pumping on Saturday 23 March when Central Otago’s finest wine and food producers present Ripe 2024.

Ripe is about the passion and energy for the best wine and food from the region. Festival goers can meet the makers—world-class Central Otago wine and food producers—and enjoy wine tastings, live music, great food and culinary demonstrations, while soaking up the atmosphere.

Twenty-five wine companies will showcase their wares, including labels such as Akarua, Amisfield, Burn Cottage, Cloudy Bay, Māori Point, Maude, Misha’s Vineyard, Quartz Reef, Rippon, Valli, and Gibbston Valley.

A tempting array of food will be on offer. Anyone looking for a bit of extra pampering, can head to the Maude Wine Lounge. This area includes complimentary wine served throughout the day from local legends Maude Wines, and plenty of delicious canapes. Enjoy a relaxed atmosphere at your table under guaranteed shade, dip off to the private luxury loos and relish being just close enough to the stage to enjoy the music while still being able to chat about your new favourite wines.
