As you’re acutely aware, the global economy is facing unprecedented times. The world is changing on a daily basis and at this point there are many question marks around how the wine industry, international travel, and the hospitality sector will be placed in the coming months.
In light of this uncertainty, and with Pinot Noir NZ 2021 being a global event, we have made the decision to postpone, with the aim of holding it in February 2022.
We have made this decision with our wineries, partners and attendees at heart, and are absolutely committed to delivering an epic Pinot Noir NZ event to the world at a later date.
The Pinot Noir NZ Bunch are right in the thick of vintage, which is the busiest time of year for our wineries. So for now, we are pressing pause, and will provide further information after this is complete, in approximately 6-8 weeks’ time. By then we’ll have a better understanding of the landscape we’re operating in.
We ask that you hold any questions until then, and wish you all the very best over the coming weeks as you navigate your way through this challenging environment.
