During 2020, the team behind the Matakana Oyster Festival took a break. This break prompted the Matakana Winegrowers group to work with local oyster farmers to create a series of lively, tasty and enjoyable oyster and wine match-up sessions.

As wine lovers, we know the secrets behind matching a syrah with cooked oysters and why aromatic whites are always so perfect with fresh seafood. Therefore, we shared our top wine styles with Matakana locals and visitors during October 2020.
