One of the country's top food festivals is set to kick off this month.
Now entering its fifth year, the Christchurch South Island Wine & Food Festival has quickly established itself as one of the leading wine and food events in the country.
Once again, the festival is preparing to host wineries from across the Christchurch and South Island region, representing some of the premier wine regions of the world.
More than 40 wineries from across the five South Island wine regions will present their wines in Hagley Park, with top local chefs plating up their best culinary dishes to match.
There will also be artisan food producers and local food vendors, as well as cooking masterclasses with celebrity chefs, informative wine seminars with leading wine personalities and live music.
