Covid Updates

The Hawke’s Bay Wine Auction continues to monitor official advice on the developments of COVID-19. Rest assured, we will follow all event guidelines as provided by Ministry of Health.

12 October 2021

Firstly, on behalf of the Hawke’s Bay Wine Auction committee, we’d like to say a THANK YOU for your incredible patience and support as we navigate these challenging times.

We have worked through every event scenario considering COVID-19 alert levels restrictions. Unfortunately, it is clear to us that we are not able to safely stage the 30th Hawke’s Bay Wine Auction in 2021. This decision has not been made lightly, our priority is keeping all involved healthy and safe.

The event is now planned to be held on 17th September 2022 at ToiToi HB Arts and Events Centre. By this time, we are hopeful we will be able to deliver a safe and seamless experience celebrating Hawke’s Bay wine’s while raising much needed funds for Cranford Hospice.

Ticket holders have been contacted, please check your inbox – if you would like to pledge your ticket purchase price to Cranford Hospice we can do so on behalf, alternatively refunds need to be requested by 13 November.

If you are able to pledge funds to Cranford Hospice you can do so on our website ‘DONATE’ tab.
Thank you for your understanding, we realise this is extremely disappointing.

Stay well and keep supporting Hawke’s Bay wines,
Hawke’s Bay Wine Auction committee.
