Auckland Grape Debate

Saturday 31 August 2019
Villa Maria Winery, Mangere


Is bigger better? It’s the Boutiques vs. the Giants

This iconic charity wine event is coming to Auckland for the very first time! And it will be no holds barred as the boutiques take on the big guns with the moot: ‘IS BIGGER BETTER?’

This year we have two amazing teams fighting out. Battling it out for the Boutique Winemakers we have Rod Easthope from Easthope Family Winegrowers, James Rowan from Westbrook Winery and Micheal Brajkovich from Kumeu River. Debating for bigger is Simon Fell from Thornbury, Jane Ferrari from Yalumba and the third is to be confirmed so stay tuned!

Tickets include dinner, drinks and a whole lot of entertainment.

All proceeds from the event will go to Kenzie’s Gift, an incredible charity helping to support children, young people and families affected by serious illness or bereavement.

An evening not to be missed!
