Winetopia Auckland postponed again

Winetopia Auckland has once again been postponed to the new date of 28-29 October, 2022 due to changing Government restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The decision to change the event from the current date of April 28-29 was made due to the uncertainty of Auckland’s traffic light settings.

“It was with a heavy heart that we made the decision to move the Auckland event, however, it was proving exceptionally difficult for our sponsors, wineries, and exhibitors to set any plans in stone,” says Winetopia Founder Rob Eliott.

“While the past two years have been an incredibly difficult time for the events industry, we look forward to the next chapter ahead.

“We will be using the extra planning time for the Winetopia Auckland event to create the biggest celebration of New Zealand wine yet, and we can’t wait to share the best of the fantastic recent vintages in October.”

The venue for the event remains the same – Shed 10, Queens Wharf, Auckland.

The Winetopia Wellington & Christchurch events remain at their previously scheduled dates:
Winetopia Wellington (1-2 July)
Winetopia Christchurch (26-27 August)

For those who have already purchased Winetopia Auckland tickets (for the previously scheduled date in May), tickets will automatically be valid on the new dates.

If a ticketholder cannot make the new dates, then a refund will be offered, as long as the request for refunds has been received before 30 April 2022 at
