Toast Martinborough General Manager Anna Nielson said the 2019 event would be remembered as the best yet.
“Even though the weather leading up to the day had me a little nervous, we had all the ingredients to make a great day – people were dressed to impress, some great wine was drunk, incredible food was eaten, and no matter what vineyard people were at, they were entertained by a fantastic line up of music acts.”
Ms Nielson said the biggest highlight of the day was fantastic feedback on the food and wine.
“Everyone was thinking pink today and really enjoyed the range of Rosé on offer in particular, but it was also great to see people trying varieties new to them, and older vintages as well.
“The bar also continues to be raised on the food front. We had 14 restaurants and caterers at Toast this year offering everything from freshly shucked oysters and whitebait fritters to fire pit paella, lamb on a spit, and gourmet doughnuts and ice cream. It’s safe to say no one went home hungry!”
Behind the scenes everything went without a hitch as well, thanks to months of meticulous planning.
“Attention to detail is everything when managing a multi-site event of this scale – the buses ran seamlessly, vineyards managed the flow of people well, and our cashless payment system, centralised control centre and Toast app all contributed to people not having to worry about a thing.
“In all it was a great day in the vines for everyone and a wonderful wine showcase for the region – whatever the weather!”
We currently have stop go traffic management in place on the intersection of Willis St and Dixon St, due to a leak in a pressurised sewer. We are looking at the best way to excavate and repair this leak safely, and will keep you updated on any traffic management changes.
As a precaution we have put up signs at Wellington Harbour advising people not to swim due to possible contamination. We are carrying out testing in the Harbour and will advise of the results.
While I love applications and know how to choose the right ones for your business. I also like to enable people to give it ago themselves.
