(PR.co.nz) Leading New Zealand wine company, Waipara Hills, has today announced its sponsorship of the highly anticipated Masterclass Series at The Food Show in Wellington next month.

The Food Show is New Zealand’s largest culinary event, held annually in Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington. It gives Kiwis the opportunity to sample the latest products from hundreds of exhibitors, gather ideas for home entertaining and learn from local and international food experts.

Waipara Hills Marketing Manager, Cathy Wansink, says the brand is delighted to be involved with the successful event for the first time this year.

“The Masterclass Series at the Food Show is a unique experience in that it allows people to learn from chefs who are the best in the business in a series of exclusive, intimate sessions. Waipara Hills is excited to be able to help bring this opportunity to the Wellington public in 2012,” Wansink says.

Small groups will be presented to by celebrity chefs and food experts including NZ Listener food columnist Lauraine Jacobs, Good Morning chef Simon Holst, MasterChef NZ judge and Editor of Cuisine Magazine Ray McVinnie, MasterChef NZ winner Nadia Lim and television and radio cooking personality Annabelle White.

The Masterclass Series classes are scheduled throughout the three days of The Food Show in Wellington which is being held at the Westpac Stadium from May 11 – 13.

Dona White, CEO of North Port Events, the company that organises The Food Show says they’re thrilled to have such a high quality wine brand as Waipara Hills associated with the new Masterclass Series.

“Our vision in holding these exclusive classes is about giving visitors a high quality, up close and personal learning experience with their favourite chef, while tasting great wine at the same time. We feel hugely confident they’ll be impressed with the stunning varieties Waipara Hills will be showcasing in the sessions,” says White.
