Pinot Noir New Zealand 2021
When: February 15, 2022 - February 17, 2022
We’re thrilled to announce our revised dates for our Pinot Noir NZ celebration. It will now take place from 15 – 17 February 2022.
The cornerstone of this celebration is bringing the global wine community together to spend time with us on our shores, and experience the best in kiwi hospitality. Therefore, it’s important for us to delay our four-yearly event by 12 months to 2022. By this time, there will be more certainly around international travel, and we’ll be able to celebrate with our international pinot posse – face to face and glass to glass.
We’d love to host you to in 2022, to share our collective stories and explore the evolution of New Zealand Pinot Noir.
Pinot Noir NZ 2022 will remain in Christchurch, and the programme will evolve in light of recent events, to ensure it remains relevant, informative and inspirational. There will be some incredibly interesting conversations to be had, and of course, plenty of Pinot Noir to taste!
We will announce our revised programme and some exciting new speakers in February 2021.

GIPPSLAND: VICTORIA’S DARK HORSE
When Tamsin Carvan (of Tamsin’s Table) moved to Gippsland from the Blue Mountains in New South Wales 13 years ago, her motto for the region was: ‘Just a little bit crap.’ “You’d order a coffee or something and it would look good, but then it wouldn’t quite hit the mark,” she says.
Back then, Gippsland wasn’t the food and wine destination it is now. There was agriculture, of course; mostly dairy, although that was industry rather than tourism. But what it did have – and continues to have – is a unique climate. Higher than average rainfall, consistent humidity, cool nights with mild-to-warm days and beautiful, fertile soils.
“The first time I came, it was September and everything was glowing green. I literally pulled over on the side of Main South Road and I could not stop crying. The physical effect of the green and the lush and everything was too incredible,” Carvan says.
Gippsland is a bit of a hidden secret. The region is full of families who’ve been there for five or six generations, and land has, historically, been tightly held. But that’s starting to change. “Over the past decade, people have moved out here because they want to do or produce something amazing,” says Carvan. “There’s a genuine, grassroots movement literally from the earth up; they’ve come here for the soil, or a particular micro-climate, or the rainfall.
