On 26 April, the Aussies cross the ditch in an audacious move to assert some form of wine-making dominance downunder. The event is being held at the prestigious Peppers Parehua's Pavilion Restaurant, with accommodation for the night at the resort. It'll be no small task for the Ockers to win on Kiwi home turf.
Acclaimed wine critic and pretty decent chap Nick Stock will host the event, ensuring that a modicum of civility and a touch of Queensbury Rules apply between winemakers - who will face off amid a sumptuous 5-course degustation menu and signature wines from both parties.
It is understood that both Wirra Wirra and Ata Rangi have already commenced the intense training required for war-readiness. Ata Rangi Winemaker Helen Masters, donning her boxing gloves at the start of Vintage today, stated: "If your name is Wirra, and you have to say it again for people to get it, you're probably on the back foot already."
Wirra Wirra were unavailable at the time of Ata Rangi's press release, but are understood to be looking up 'is NZ wine better than Australian?' on Google.
The Wine Wars event package is $499 per couple, including:
· Overnight accommodation in a luxurious cottage
· Full cooked provincial styled breakfast in the Pavilion Restaurant
· Gourmet Food Trail platter on arrival
· Signature degustation dinner and ANZAC Wine Wars event

This fabulous scenic walk or run (10 km or 21 km options) meanders through the leafy vineyard village of Martinborough. The course affords stunning views of the terrace edge, river valleys and vineyards surrounding Martinborough. Around 2000 entrants enjoy anything from a stroll to a half-marathon run, stopping here and there to samples wines and taste from baskets of grapes and watermelons. The camaradarie is legendary, and many liven up the day with creative costumes and crazy fancy dress.
All proceeds go to the local Martinborough School whose parents and children actively support this event as hard-working volunteers.
