Shuck it! And come to the Oyster and Wine Festival Matakana this year. Local oyster farmers from the Mahurangi Harbour will be shucking and serving their plump and delicious oysters au naturel, paired with local wines for a mouth-watering experience. If you're not a fan of these salty beauties, there will be other seafood and cuisine available to satisfy your taste buds.
The all-weather event will entertain with live music, cooking and wine demonstrations, arts and crafts for the kids and of course, shucking competitions - let the oyster battle begin!
Oysters and wine often hold a notion of sophistication, however leave the heels at home and make sure you glam up your gumboots for this one. There's a special prize for the best pair of gummies on show!
