Nelson Wine & Food Festival celebrates sensational sounds, wine, food, and summer.

Thanks for attending the Nelson Wine and Food Festival 2017 and for liking us on Facebook. We hope you really enjoyed yourself. We had a great day. 
The event was coordinated by Rotarian's from the Rotary Club of Richmond. We are a group of people who like to have fun and help out in the community. We help build the cycle-paths, BBQ shelters at Rabbit Island and organise the Wine and Food Festival.

To date we have raised $360,000.00 from the Wine and Food Festival. Proceeds are then donated to community groups like the Rescue Helicopter, Hospice, Womens Refuge, Coastguard, local Fire brigades as well as local sporting groups and schools.
To find out more about how you can help your community while having fun with like minded people please call Candy on 021 808 353.

Nelson Wine & Food Festival Rotary Richmond

Nelson Wine & Food Festival celebrates sensational sounds, wine, food, and summer. Hold onto your holiday groove, grab a friend and head to the Nelson  Wine & Food Festival, for all-day entertainment, fantastic food, and award-winning wine and beer.


Set in a stunning vineyard location, Middle Earth Winery on Bryant Road, the BWFF festival is all about local!
