Pinot Noir NZ and Bottle Shop Concepts are joining forces to deliver the largest and most exciting Pinot Noir tasting Wellington has ever seen.

Wellington’s waterfront will be transformed into a Pinot Pavilion for Pinot Palooza will take place on Monday 30 January 2017. The pavilion will contain 120 of New Zealand’s top Pinot Noir producers, who will host a huge public wine tasting.

“Pinot Palooza’s tagline is ‘wine that rocks’ so to accompany the incredible range of Pinot Noir on offer we’ll have local DJs, food trucks and sommelier ‘roadies’. It will be a great time guaranteed for everyone who comes along,” said organiser Dan Sims from Bottle Shop Concepts.

Pinot Palooza debuted on the Auckland waterfront in September and is also regularly held in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide every year.

The three day event is described as ‘the best Pinot Noir event on the planet’, attracts some of the world’s greatest minds and palates on the subject.

“Pinot Palooza and Pinot Noir NZ collaborating has happened because of the incredible enthusiasm and support of kiwi wineries for both events,” said Ben Glover, Pinot Noir NZ chair. Earlybird tickets are now on sale.
