Why not enjoy a beautiful summer evening listening to pure kiwi music, surrounded by a spectacular outdoor setting in some of New Zealand's best winery's. Join 'The Winery Tour 2012'. Enjoy a drop of New Zealand Wine while being serenaded by Dave Baxter's dulcet tones and his 6 piece band Avalanche city, dance to Gin Wigmore's raw and emotional voice and reminisce when Don McGlashan and the Mutton birds fire up. With events in Wineries all around the country, even if you're busy when your local show is on, you'll surely be able to catch one somewhere else.

The concerts are outdoors so come prepared for rain, hail or shine as the show will only stop under exceptional circumstances. As the wineries are mainly out in the country, the best option is to drive to each place and most have ample parking for you.


Why not make a mini holiday of it and hire a campervan. Easily park it at the winery , enjoy an evening sipping beautiful wine and listening to the best of Kiwi music, then cruise it to a campsite where you can sleep peacefully. Find a campervan in the location you want through Campervan Hire Sale Finder or through Motorhome Republic.
