Satellite Events

As part of our Tastings on Hastings festivities for 2017, we are thrilled to be incorporating a range of satellite events. These events promote the best of our region by taking people to the source of our fabulous foodies.

From exquisite fine dining to day-tripping around our region’s farm gates and wineries, our satellite events will leave your taste-buds tingling. We’ve rounded up all of our favourite foodies and put together a schedule full of our region’s very best.
