Following the announcement from the Government to move into the red traffic light setting, it's with heavy hearts that we confirm the cancellation of the 2021* South Island Wine & Food Festival.
We are truly devastated by this news and understand many of you would have had travel plans and arrangements locked in for some time. After already postponing this event once, we are crushed to have it taken away - the first cancellation in the event's 11-year history.
This is a gutting loss not only for the larger events industry but to all the wineries, food vendors, staff, and sponsors who have been deep in preparation for the weekend to come.
We would like to thank you for your support and understanding during this tumultuous time.
All tickets automatically roll over to next summer's festival which is taking place on SATURDAY 3rd DECEMBER 2022 - Nothing changes and all tickets remain valid!
Keeping your ticket will give you exclusive access to giveaways and prizes throughout the year.
From FRIDAY 28th January at 12pm, those of you who do not wish to simply hold on to your tickets, will be able to login and claim your refund. This window will stay open until MONDAY 28th February.
Please head to on Friday to access your account. Here you’ll find the refund option next to your order.
Refunds can take up to 5-10 business days to clear into your nominated bank account.



The South Island Wine & Food Festival is New Zealand’s premier celebration of the quality and diversity of wines and food produced here on the mainland.

Festival Features include interactive wine seminars & workshops hosted by Masters of Wine and Sommeliers from New Zealand.
