Welcome to F.A.W.C! Food and Wine Classic, Hawke’s Bay

Winter F.A.W.C! - June 5th to 28th 2015

Winter F.A.W.C! is Summer F.A.W.C!'s hot and slightly cheeky little sister, wrapped in fur sitting by a well-stoked fire.

This June, we are bringing you four fabulous Winter F.A.W.C! weekends to celebrate the seasonal goodness winter brings.

Hunker down in cosy locations with roaring fires, musical notes and endless lashings of local lamb, venison and sumptuous earthy produce prepared in a multitude of warming ways. Glasses of rich, full bodied Hawke's Bay Reds will be flowing as the region's food and wine heroes strut their stuff at 45 delicious events.

F.A.W.C! by 5 is the perfect side dish to the Winter F.A.W.C! event line-up.

For the entire month of June, an array of Hawke's Bays finest restaurants, cafes and bars will be serving special Winter F.A.W.C! menu selections. These will come in $5 offerings with none over $50 per person.

Tickets are on sale now...


Summer F.A.W.C! will be back from November 6th to 15th 2015. Mark it in your diaries now!

F.A.W.C! Food and Wine Classic is a series of one off, out of the box food and wine events set in stunning locations throughout Hawke’s Bay each year. F.A.W.C! is for folk who seriously love to eat, can often be seen with mucky chins, stained napkins and licking fingers after a meal.

There’s a summer and winter series and they offer you a chance to get up close and personal with chefs, food producers, winemakers and all the other clever people that make up New Zealand’s food and wine scene

Summer F.A.W.C! runs for ten days every November with over fifty individual events in the schedule and celebrity chef Ray McVinnie is in the hosting seat for a number of mouth watering events.

Summer F.A.W.C! is coming!

Yes, that’s right, we are just days away from you getting your little hot hands on tickets for the 2014 Summer Series!

We don't want to give too much away but let’s just say there are plenty of famous faces leading the charge in a dizzying array of super cool events (62 to be precise!).

The programme will be live at from tomorrow with pre-sales for our loyal F.A.W.C!ers (that's you!) opening on Thursday August 28th at 9am.
