New Zealand Wine Festival Korea
Join The Kiwi Chamber (NZ Chamber of Commerce in Korea), Anuj Madan (Photographer), and The Toronto Seoulcialite May 20th, 2017 at the Grand Hyatt Seoul. At the New Zealand Wine Festival we’ll sample reds and whites from over 20 different vineyards. Registrations are now open so head over to www.kiwichamber.com and follow the links!
We all know how much I love wine! We’re only through 4 months of 2017 and I’ve already visited a couple of vineyards (where I’ve soaked my feet in wine twice) and have had the pleasure of dining and imbibing with other Korea Bloggers at Vineworks Korea. I’ve been invited to the New Zealand Wine Festival and could not be more excited!
The event promises to be a first-class New Zealand-themed culinary experience coupled with the finest service. A superb outdoor BBQ-style buffet (hells yes!) will be served in Seoul and an exquisite tapas buffet in Busan (June 3rd, 2017 at the Park Hyatt Busan). Now, to practice looking dainty while balancing a glass o’ vino in a tea-length skirt while eating lamb shank…
We’ll be able to sample a plethora of wine from “the other side of the world where the air is clean, the water is pure and the wine is exceptional. New Zealand has a unique geography and perfect climate which make its wines truly special,” explained Dr. Garrett. “With well over 700 vineyards spread across the country, consumers have a wide variety of vintages from Hawke’s Bay in the North Island to Central Otago in the South to choose from.”
Both events will feature lucky draws with unreal prizes. People who have attended lucky draws with me in the past know to stand near me when they’re calling out numbers. I’m a bit of a ‘good luck Chuck’ when it comes to raffles – my friends always win! Since Singapore Airlines is a major sponsor of both events, they’ve upped the ante and are offering an amazing lucky draw prize of an economy return ticket to New Zealand!
