INDULGE is New Zealand’s newest and largest food, wine, and design festival coming to Auckland in the New Year. With stellar restaurants and wineries, including Baduzzi and Inca, Wynard Point and Jellicoe Harbour will be transformed into a food and wine extravaganza in 2023.

White & Wongs is the latest restaurant to join the line-up for INDULGE, ready to be a part of the four-day event full of delicious dishes, interactive masterclasses, and music entertainment. Ticket holders will have the opportunity to meet world-renowned chefs and local talent, try the latest wine blends and harvests, and listen to new tunes by on-site DJs while enjoying the zest of Auckland’s harbour.

Simon Wilson, Urban Events Managing Director, is excited to have White & Wongs onboard for the event.

“With Michael Dearth of Baduzzi and Nic Watt from Inca already on board as brand ambassadors. We knew we had the makings of a fantastic and never-seen-before food event. White & Wongs is further confirmation this is an event hospitality businesses want to be involved in and one for all New Zealanders to enjoy.”


White & Wong’s spokesperson said, “After a really tough couple of years for our industry, we’re really excited to have an event in New Zealand’s biggest city that can showcase all that is great about the food scene.”

As a great excuse to savour the final moments of summer, INDULGE will bring together locals and travellers into the heart of Tāmaki Makaurau, expected to host around 20,000 over its four days. This festive cuisine is open to anyone in the public, with tickets available on the INDULGE website.

“Keep your eyes and ears open, because we have plenty of announcements to come including more restaurants, all our winery exhibitors and musicians,” Watts explained.

This event will be made possible by the support of Tourism New Zealand and Auckland Unlimited, as well as their commercial and media partner NZME.
