The New Zealand Chamber of Commerce in Korea, known as "The Kiwi Chamber," will host annual wine festivals and promises this year’s event to be more special as it comes after the Korea-New Zealand FTA lifting all tariffs on New Zealand wine as of December 2015.
New Zealand Wine Festivals will be held on May 28th at the Park Hyatt Busan, and June 4th at the Waterfall Garden of the Grand Hyatt Seoul.
"The wine festivals are the chamber`s most popular events of the year and they offer our members and guests an opportunity to experience the best of New Zealand," said Dr. Tony Garrett, Chairman of The Kiwi Chamber. "There is ample time for tasting and wine cognoscenti will be able to enjoy an array of top brands from some of the world`s top wine-producing regions."
To celebrate the landmark deal, the New Zealand Wine Festivals will offer wine aficionados a chance to savor over 80 premium New Zealand red and white labels from over 25 participating vineyards.
Tickets for each wine festival are 80,000 won for Kiwi Chamber and DINE@HYATT members, 100,000 won for non-members and 110,000 won for door purchases. In the event of inclement weather, the Grand Hyatt Seoul festivities will be held indoors. Anyone who wishes to attend the event can find more information at www.kiwichamber.com.
