NZ's first ever global wine tasting

Over 140 wines from 14 countries

The World of Wine Festival will be the largest ever showcase of international wines in New Zealand.

You know NZ wine, come delve into the rest of the wine world. 

When and Where?

Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th of May 2018. Each session is 12-6pm.

In the beautiful and central venue: AUT's Auckland City Campus's main foyer. Located opposite Albert Park and the Auckland Art Gallery.


The World of Wine Festival is New Zealand's first ever showcase of purely international wines. Where usually these events focus in on the wines from New Zealand and Australia, The World of Wine Festival is a celebration of the great wines from all around the world of wine - completing the story. It aims to highlight the brilliant and exciting wines that you will find from all corners of the globe. We hope to be able to open your eyes to not just new producers and wineries but to grapes, regions, and styles.
