Bridge Pa Wine Festival – January 24th

The Bridge Pa Wine Festival.

Eight Wineries in the Bridge Pa Triangle Wine District of Hawke’s Bay are running a collective wine festival. All wineries will be connected by Hop On/Hop Off Buses throughout the day, allowing patrons to visit multiple wineries and enjoy a multitude of wine experiences. Based on the original format of Harvest Hawke’s Bay, this festival has the added benefit of all the wineries being close by, allowing patrons to be no more than 5 minutes from the next venue.

Each Winery will offer a range of activities, including wine tasting, food, music and masterclasses. The wineries involved are Abbey Cellars, Alpha Domus, Ash Ridge, Hawkes Ridge, Ngatarawa, Paritua, Salvare and Sileni. Visit their websites to see the activities for the day.
