F.A.W.C! Night in Virtual Wine Tasting
Venue: Your place

If the Covid lockdown taught us anything, it was that in those difficult circumstances a Zoom catch-up with friends over a wine was a good alternative to a real get together.

Coming up on August 15, Hawke’s Bay’s Food and Wine Classic is offering the inaugural F.A.W.C! Night In Virtual Wine Tasting, an upgraded version of those lockdown get togethers to include the winemakers on Zoom telling the stories of their wines.

As the winemakers talk exclusively to your group about their wines, you taste the wine at home in the company of your friends. It caters for groups of up to 10 for an evening of wine, canapѐs and banter beamed into the living room. There will be a limited number if groups.

The virtual wine tasting will feature five different wines from five of the region’s leading wineries. Discover the flavours of each of these wines, why different varietals have excelled in the varied terrain of Hawke’s Bay and enjoy the witty tête-à-tête from these industry insiders.

The pre-ordered F.A.W.C! Night In hamper includes a bottle of each of the five wines being tasted and the ingredients for five carefully matched canapés from the Hawke’s Bay Farmers’ Market and suppliers.

Tickets available from Eventfinda.
