Chardonnay Symposium

Written by  Staff Reporters

The inaugural Aotearoa New Zealand Chardonnay Symposium will be held in Te Matau-a-Māui Hawke's Bay, celebrating one of New Zealand's most important varietals in its 'spiritual home', says HBWG Chair Sally Duncan.

"We are excited to be hosting this nationally significant event in Hawke's Bay, that builds on our reputation as a region that produces world class Chardonnays and fits with our reputation as one of the great wine regions of the world."

The symposium will bring together New Zealand's wine community to taste and share knowledge on trends, and to hear from domestic and international Chardonnay experts.

The event, organised by HBWG in collaboration with NZW and the New Zealand Society of Oenology and Viticulture (NZSVO), will be held at the Toitoi: Hawke's Bay Arts and Event Centre in Hastings.

The NZSVO will deliver a technical workshop on Chardonnay on day one, to be followed by an international perspective on Chardonnay the next day.

HBWG will host the Great New Zealand Chardonnay Celebration in the newly refurbished laneways precinct of Toitoi on the evening of 5 October.
