Classic Hits Winery Tour 2013 - Martinborough

The Winery Tour is an annual event with shows at wineries throughout the country, from Matakana to Dunedin. This year the artists are Fat Freddy's Drop, The Adults (featuring Jon Toogood, Julia Deans & Shayne Carter), and Anika, Boh and Hollie.

Alana Estate is hosting the winery tour in Martinborough on Saturday 9 February. Gates open at 5pm and the first act is on stage at 6pm. The event closes at 10pm. There will be buses from Wellington; tickets are advertised as being available at www.tranzittours.co.nz (but the event is not live yet). Or there is the usual train and bus combination.

The trip can be done in one day or, if anyone is keen, there is the potential to get a house for the night and enjoy a lazy breakfast in Martinborough the next morning.

TICKET PRICES, FOOD, SEATING ETC......

Tickets purchased on or before 30 November 2012 are $65 plus booking fees; from 1 December they are $75 plus booking fees; and at the gate they are $85. (FYI one child 12 yrs or under gets in free when accompanied by a parent or guardian who has purchased a ticket).

You can bring your own food and sealed bottled water (plastic only). You cannot BYO alcohol as the event is fully licensed, and no glass is allowed to be brought in. There will also be food stalls onsite.

You can bring your own chairs or blanket to sit on. Low or sand chairs are a good option. Foldable chairs will be available for hire.

    Hi everyone, apart from Clelia, Rachel and my sister Ange, who are coming with me, everyone should have made their own transport arrangements for the concert. It would be great to meet up as a larger group, so does anyone have any ideas about where and when?

    Transport to Alana Estate

    Hi all, Tranzit now has details online about options for those attending the Winery Tour concerts. Alana Estate is here:
    http://www.tranzittours.co.nz/Events---Concerts/Classic-Hits-Winery-Tour-Alana-Estate-13.asp

    The essential details are that it will cost $50 pp return from Wellington (includes stops throughout the Hutt), $25 pp return from Wairarapa towns and $8 return from Martinborough itself. The bus leaves at 3pm from Wellington and 4:30pm from Martinborough.

    I will leave it to people to arrange their own transport, other than for me, Ange, Clelia and Rachel who are all planning to stay Saturday night together. I know that myself and Ange will stay sober so we are unlikely to need a return ticket from Martinborough - but we can always discuss this :-).

    cheers

    Hi everyone, great to see there's a bunch of us going - I'm sure we can arrange to meet up. I'm about to look for some accommodation for the Saturday night; could you please let me know by say Friday 4 January if you would like to be included in that. If i don't hear from you, I will assume you don't need it.
    cheers

      Hi Clelia and Rachel, that's great, I'll include you in the accommodation options. I'll be in touch again soon :-).

      January 1, 2013

    • Caroline Emily D.

      I've now organised accommodation in Martinborough for me, Clelia, Rachel and my sister Ange. I'll email you separately with the details. The place could take a couple more, if anyone else joins this Meetup and needs accommodation.
