Kinross Harvest Celebration

May 2022
Dates TBC

We are already planning our 2022 annual Harvest Celebration, that pays homage to our region’s world-class wine industry, while providing locals and visitors a chance to take part in some fun and informative tasting and wine related activities.

The range of events celebrates the culmination of a year’s hard work, as everyone in the wine industry comes together to pick the vintage’s fruit and reflect on a year that was far from the average. It also gives the wider community an opportunity to get an insider’s view into the annual harvest, at a time when the wine making community is usually preoccupied with the business of getting the grapes off the vines.

From tasting events, vineyard walks, international varietal studies, blind tastings and more - we want to showcase how amazing Central Otago and Gibbston wine is as well as how fun it is to learn more about winemaking and the different wines from around the world. We hope you can join us!
