Wairarapa Harvest Festival – March 2011

Monday, May 16th, 2011

The Harvest Festival is a high quality, annual event showcasing sensational wines and food from throughout the Wairarapa region. 

The festival was held at the beautiful, sheltered riverside setting locally known as ‘The Cliffs’ on the banks of the Ruamahunga River.  Its remoteness and vineyard setting is part of its appeal.

Angus is one of the founding board members of this event and Urlar has been involved with the Harvest Festival since it began 5 years ago and this year the organisers put on yet another spectacular day full of fun, food, wine and entertainment.

Tickets sell out fast so make sure you don’t miss next year’s Harvest Festival in the Wairarapa.  It will be held on Saturday 10th March 2012.  We look forward to seeing you there!

We are thrilled that our Urlar Pinot Noir 2009 has been carefully selected by a prestigious group of wine judges for Air New Zealand business class flights from August 2011 to January 2012.  Two famous New Zealand winemakers; John Belsham and Kate Radburn tasted through 720 wines to come up with only a handful to be selected.
