Ripe is returning to Wānaka to celebrate the best wine and food from the finest growers and producers across Central Otago on Saturday 19 March 2022.

Tickets are now available for the second consecutive Ripe festival, which was the brainchild of Wānaka local, and owner of Otago Event Planning, Nathan White.

The 2022 event will feature 20 of the region’s best wineries, complemented by a selection of delicious local food stalls, entertainment, and exceptional panoramic lake and mountain views from the festival’s new venue, Glendhu Station.


Ripe also gives festival-goers the opportunity to make the most of a long weekend in Central Otago, with Otago Anniversary Day falling on Monday 21 March 2022.
