Classic Hits Winery Tour at Waipara Hills enjoyed by many

Classic Hits Winery Tour Waipara Hills

A 30 degree day, followed by a balmy evening, was the perfect recipe for the 8th annual Classic Hits Winery Tour at Waipara Hills.

This year the concert was held on February 22nd, coincidently falling on the third anniversary of the devastating Christchurch Earthquake. It was a very poignant moment when concert co-promoter, Brent Eccles asked the crowd to raise their glasses in memory of those lost in the quake and to salute the future. Jordan Luck of the Exponents led a minutes silence immediately after, which produced utter stillness – it is not often you could hear a pin drop at a Classic Hits Winery Tour concert!

The concert drew families, couples, groups of friends; both local Cantabs and others from further afield; who comprised the 4,000 strong crowd, all ready to dance the night away. Many guests said they attended the Classic Hits Winery Tour at Waipara Hills every year, because they enjoyed the venue and loved how the line-up included old favourites; The Exponents along with new pop sensation; Stan Walker, who drew the younger generation and their families.

Many brought picnics and there was a wonderful atmosphere amongst guests, with the majority getting up to dance when Stan Walker and the Exponents performed. The Waipara Hills wine was enjoyed by many with the 2013 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc a top favourite, suiting the balmy evening.

Waipara Hills Cellar Door and café manager; Jenny Anderson said the evening was a success, “it was a great fusion of fun and festivity, supported by fabulous food and wine”.

Jenny is looking forward to hosting more concerts in the future at Waipara Hills, “We have such a perfect setting here at Waipara Hills, the winery provides a great backdrop against the scenic Teviotdale Hills and of course we love that these events bring more people to the Waipara district.

The next Classic Hits Winery Tour is planned for February 2015 with dates and performers set to be announced later this year. Keep an eye out on the Waipara Hills website for information www.waiparahills.co.nz
