Wine, food, live music and fun are all on the menu for the F.A.W.C! Taste Hastings event taking place in East Block, Heretaunga Street, on Friday, November 4, 5pm-8pm.
It’s set to be a street party of epic proportions, featuring 25 pop-up wineries showcasing a wide array of delicious Hawke’s Bay wines, food trucks in Albert Square, live music from Tropical Downbeat Orchestra, music from DJ Pang in Landmarks Square and the Flock Events Street Lounge to chill out in.
Hawke’s Bay Winegrowers general manager Brent Linn said Taste Hastings is a great opportunity for people to meet Hawke’s Bay wineries and taste their wines in one location.
“We are really delighted to partner with Hastings District Council for this event - we are all set for a great night showcasing an extensive range of Hawke’s Bay wines.”
There will also be the option for late night shopping from some of the boutique retailers in East Block including a pop-up stall from the Hastings i-SITE who will be unveiling a selection of their new merchandise.
Heretaunga Street “East Block” roads will be closed so punters can kerb-hop without the traffic, tasting their way down the street.
Wineries on show are a mix of big and boutique brands: Amoise Wines, Ash Ridge Wines, Askerne Estate Winery, Crab Farm, Craggy Range, Decibel Wines, Esk Valley, Halcyon Wines, Helio Wine, Hopes Grove, Kokako Farms, Lime Rock, Mission Estate, Monowai, Oak Estate Wines, Paritua, Petane Wines, Red Metal, Sileni Estate, Smith & Sheth, Squawking Magpie, Swift Wines, Tony Bish Wines, Trinity Hill and Unison Vineyard.
Food Truck newcomers “Shani’s” and “Gina’s” will be parked up in Landmarks Square, serving delicious ribs and flame-grilled fare, tacos and flatbreads and of course, all the fabulous bars, restaurants and eateries in Hastings city centre will be open, ready to welcome you inside for dinner and a drink.
Another exciting foodie on the night is none other than beloved Rush Munro’s, who will be serving delicious desserts from their brand new location in Albert Square.
Hastings District Council city centre activation officer Andrea Taaffe said event attendees could expect a super fun night out.
“In addition to the great wine and live music performances, event-goers can also enjoy tastings from Pig & Salt, St Andrews Limes and Nieuwenhius Farmstead Cheese, plus great dining options from all the surrounding eateries and bars.”
