Aotearoa New Zealand Chardonnay Symposium date announced

The inaugural Aotearoa New Zealand Chardonnay Symposium is set be held in Te Matau-a-Māui Hawke’s Bay on the 5th and 6th of October 2023.

Hosted by Hawke’s Bay Winegrowers, in collaboration with New Zealand Winegrowers and the New Zealand Society of Oenology and Viticulture, the symposium will bring together a national audience from the wine community to hear, taste and share knowledge on the domestic and international trends happening with Chardonnay.

Chardonnay is one of New Zealand’s most important varietals with a strong presence in Hawke’s Bay and the event will be held at Toitoi: Hawke’s Bay Arts and Event Centre, in Hastings where delegates will have the opportunity to hear from domestic and international Chardonnay experts.

The NZSVO will be delivering a technical workshop on Chardonnay on day one to be followed by an international focussed perspective on Chardonnay on day two.

“We are excited to be hosting this nationally significant event in Hawke’s Bay, that builds on our reputation as a region that produces world class Chardonnays and fits with our reputation as one of the great wine regions of the world,” says Sally Duncan, Chair of HBWG.

“Announcements of international speakers will follow but in the interim please save the date and we look forward to hosting you in our beautiful province”
