After the Covid pandemic, it is finally possible to have this wonderful New Zealand Korean wine festival. The New Zealand Chamber of Commerce in Korea, or “The Kiwi Chamber,” will once again host a set of wine festivals in Seoul and Busan under the theme “Reconnecting with New Zealand wine”.
The festival is celebrating the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Korea and New Zealand. Encouraging guests to reconnect with their favorite vintages and discover captivating new varieties, the 19th anniversary Seoul event will take place on Saturday, June 11th at the Grand Hyatt Seoul’s picturesque waterfall garden. The 20th festival will occur in Busan on Saturday, June 18th at the Busan Cinema Center. This beautiful location holds the Guinness Book World Record for the longest cantilever roof. Both events will run from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m.
“There are some exciting niche export areas where New Zealand has a strong brand presence in Korea, and wine is one of them,” remarked Philip Turner, New Zealand Ambassador to South Korea. “The Korea-New Zealand FTA reduced tariffs on New Zealand wine from 15% to zero in 2015, and there has been strong growth since then. Events such as the annual Kiwi Chamber wine festivals in Seoul and Busan have done a lot to increase the profile of New Zealand’s products.”
“The Kiwi Chamber wine festivals are back, and guests will be able to discover the unique diversity of New Zealand’s wine regions, varieties, and styles,” said Dr. Tony Garrett, Chairman of The Kiwi Chamber.
