New Zealand Winegrowers and Women in Wine NZ are hosting an evening of networking, celebration and inspiration on the eve of Bragato 2018.

Dr Selina Tusitala Marsh, the current New Zealand Poet Laureate, is the guest speaker. She is a Pasifika poet-scholar and has three highly acclaimed collections of poetry.  Selina has performed for the Queen at Westminster Abbey and recently poetically MC-ed ‘An Evening with Barack Obama’.  It will be a privilege to hear what inspires her to write such powerful poems and perhaps learn how we can all tap into our inner strengths and creativity.   

Katherine Jacobs and Rachel Taulelei, two very successful women in wine and who both sit on the New Zealand Winegrowers Board, will also speak about their passion for the wine industry and interesting career paths. 

Following the speeches there will be plenty of time for networking.  As we celebrate the Women in Wine NZ initiative and what it has achieved since its launch last year, a selection of fine New Zealand wines, produced and influenced primarily by women, will be served along with delicious canapes.   

Date:      Tuesday 28th August 2018
Time:     6pm - 8pm
Venue:   New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts, 1 Queens Wharf, Wellington
