The Man O'War Summer Lunch

Waiheke Island | 25 Feb 2018

Waiheke's only tasting room on the beach provides a wonderful, idyllic setting to our annual fundraiser on the island.

Catering to both locals and 'mainlanders' who love fine food, sunshine and of course wonderful Man O'War wines, this event is a sought after soirée on the summer calendar. The event returns again on Sunday, February 25th, 2018. With the finest food, wine and views this great city can provide, you'll need to grab your tickets before they sell out. Tickets will be available from October 2017. 





Over the years, New Zealand food royalty have graced our event. We have been blessed to host Josh Emett, Ben Bayly, Sean Connolly, Mark Southon, Gareth Stewart and many, many more elite chefs to present incredible menus for our guests.

As a flagship fundraiser for Auckland's Westpac Rescue Chopper, this event is highly sought after. We provide  free transport (donated by generous sponsor Fullers) from Auckland City, via Matiatia, to the private jetty at Man O'War bay - strictly limited to the first 300. Guests enjoy the beautiful lunch and fine wines in a relaxed, garden setting like no other in New Zealand. Live music & a charitable auction feature in a most unique afternoon.

Thank you to our main event sponsors who help make this wonderful event a reality every year:
