Toast Martinborough 2018

Toast Martinborough: Park for the weekend: Tauherenikau Racecourse, Featherston Sunday, 18 November '18


Enjoy a weekend away at Toast Martinborough November 17th to 19th at beautiful Tauherenikau.

What a wonderful 2017 festival – stunning weather, wine, food, entertainment, and crowd!

Toast Martinborough general manager Anna Nielson said the 27th edition of the event, which weaves together the very best of wine, food and music to create an unforgettable day in the vines, is set to be the best in recent history.

“Good wine is always in vogue and Toast 2018 is no exception. This year we are showcasing nine vineyard sites and some of the best chefs in the business to offer wine and food matches of unrivaled flavour and sophistication, supported by a collection of musicians guaranteed to have everyone singing, dancing and laughing,” Ms Nielson said.

Ms Nielson said no matter how festivalgoers wanted to layer their day – whether it’s ticking off the bubbles bars, comparing the new release wines, working through some older vintages, or simply chatting to the winemakers - Toast would have every option covered, thoughtfully paired with the perfect food match of course.

A key part of what makes Toast so unique is the multi-site celebration, as it allows festival-goers to discover the rich fabric of the Toast experience piece by piece. People can experience the atmosphere of each site by riding the free shuttles, or by following the thread of vineyard hoppers making their way on foot.

“Whatever the destination, a warm welcome and a glass of something delicious awaits.”

It’s the opportunity for a truly magical weekend of the best wine and food this country has to offer.
