On the first weekend of January the Wine & Food Festival is held in the picturesque grounds of Old Cromwell Town Historic Precinct.
This festival showcases wines from the Cromwell Basin of which there are over 30 vineyards. Many do not have cellar doors and this festival is a great opportunity to sample the distinctive pinot noir, pinot gris and other wines of this highly acclaimed wine growing area.
Local ‘foodies’ have stalls alongside each wine tasting stall and you can sample many regional delicacies such as, whitebait, paua patties, rabbit sausages , cheeses and much, much more.
The festival runs from 3pm till late and you can sit back and enjoy good music from local musicians, good food and good wine in a beautiful setting amongst historic stone buildings on the edge of Lake Dunstan surrounded by the majestic hills of Central Otago.
An entry fee is charged which includes your own wine glass for you to use and keep as a reminder of a great holiday experience.
