Wine and food enthusiasts keen to experience Toast Martinborough 2012 are advised to act quickly when tickets go on sale on Wednesday, October 3.

The festival has a well-established reputation as one of New Zealand's premier wine and food events. Organisers anticipate that, as in previous years, all 10,000 tickets for the November 18 festival will sell out in minutes.

"This is a once-a-year opportunity to enjoy outstanding wines from 10 of Martinborough's award-winning vineyards, while enjoying superb food and live music and entertainment," says Toast Martinborough general manager Rachael Fletcher.

The 2012 participating vineyards will be Alana Estate, Ata Rangi, Escarpment, Margrain Vineyard, Martinborough Vineyard/Burnt Spur Vineyard, Muirlea Rise, Palliser Estate, Te Kairanga Wines, Tirohana Estate and Vynfields. Well-known caterers and restaurateurs from the Wairarapa and Wellington regions will offer a menu of carefully matched, restaurant-quality food, and some of New Zealand's most popular artists will perform.

They include The Beat Girls, The Warratahs, Uncle Monkey, Vinyl Bison, the Nairobi Trio, Twinset and The Eggs.

"Once again, Toast Martinborough will offer an amazing day in the vines," says Fletcher.

"What's more, festival-goers can enjoy the region's hospitality well after the event; using their unspent 'francs' they can buy wine vouchers for the vineyards of their choice."

Fletcher recommends the new Toast Martinborough app for smartphones. Festival-goers will have access to festival information at their fingertips, plus an interactive map that will highlight their proximity to festival sites. "It has all the latest news and information, as well as tips for first-time visitors."

Tickets will be available from 9am at 0800 TICKETEK or the Ticketek website and a limited number of special Air New Zealand flight and ticket packages will be sold online from 8am.
