Toast Martinborough continues to redefine the festival experience, combining the best of 26 years of tradition with fantastic new innovations to remain New Zealand’s undisputed premier wine and food celebration.

Eight vineyard sites where wine is the rightful star of the show, supported by superb food prepared by some of the country’s best chefs will cater to every hankering. Whether your day is about ticking off the bubbles bars, trying the new releases, locating an older vintage, or talking to the winemakers, Toast has every avenue covered.

Experience each vineyard’s unique take on the Toast celebration by catching a lift on one of the free shuttle buses that circulate continuously around the route, or follow your nose (and the beats) by meandering the easy distances on foot.

Arrive at each vineyard gate and be guided through vines and into to what can only be described as pure wine heaven and food hedonism with a backing soundtrack that will have festival-goers singing, dancing, and laughing all day with a wine in hand of course.

Fancy something tasty to go with that fine wine, just not sure what? We’ve thought about that too, with as many interesting options to eat thoughtfully matched to the wines on offer at each vineyard.

Toast also continues to raise the bar to enhance the festivalgoer experience. Innovations introduced in 2016 including the shatterproof Globelet stemless wineglasses and cashless wristband payment system are set to return. As well as this, even the techies will be impressed with how Toast is leading the way with technology in 2017 to make this year’s event more seamless and enjoyable than ever.

Make it a fitting end to the day by heading back to the Square to catch up with friends and dance under the trees to the closing band, and leave Martinborough with memories of excellent wines, food extravagance and fantastic times with your Toast crew.

There’s no doubt about it, Toast has all the ingredients for an unforgettable celebration, all we need is you! Like any good shindig, it’s better with friends and with tickets on sale from the 19th September via Ticketek, it’s time to assemble your crew, secure your booking, accommodation and transport. Then all you need to do is start counting down the days until Sunday 19 November for Toast 2017!
