F.A.W.C! Food and Wine Classic

Twice a year, in June and November, Hawke’s Bay’s talented cuisine community band together to create a multi-day festival of food and wine. The Winter F.A.W.C! programme runs over four consecutive weekends each June and features 40+ events, while Summer F.A.W.C! is a ten-day affair in early November that typically packs in more than 60 events.

Each programme is incredibly diverse, typically featuring masterclasses, degustation, winemaker’s lunches, garden parties, picnics in the vines and progressive dinners. The best part is that each experience is designed to be unique – something that’s not available at any of the time of year, which makes it feel a bit special.

Winter F.A.W.C! 4th - 27th June 2021


Winter F.A.W.C! Food and Wine Classic is back for the 8th year and we couldn't be more excited! Once again, hosted over the four weekends in June, you'll be treated to all manner of hearty fare, warming red wines fireside and moments of culinary magic by our talented chefs and foodies, award-winning winemakers and artisan brewers.

Here at F.A.W.C! we are rightly proud of Hawke’s Bay’s legendary food and drink industries. But who are the visionaries who have helped shape New Zealand’s Food and Wine Country into the amazing playground for foodies that it is today?

From the extraordinarily talented chefs and formidable wine makers who helped established Hawke’s Bay’s vino legacy, to the burgeoning artisan producers and craft brewers who are adding magnitudes to our region’s reputation as a foodie paradise, we want to hear all about it!
