Grapevinyl @ Ascension Wine Estate


The bunny can move aside: Grapevinyl is bringing the bounty this year for Easter at Ascension Vineyard – sweet tunes paired with your fave local wines. So far the full line up’s yet to be confirmed, but we can say the iconic Samoan artist King Kapisi will be playing. Kapisi was New Zealand’s first reggae/hip hop artist to receive the Silver Scroll Award at the APRA Awards for Songwriter of the year back in 1999. Since then, he’s toured overseas, performed alongside Moby, The Black Eyed Peas, Beastie Boys and released three albums, the most recent being Dominant Species (2005). Now he’s back with a new album titled Hip Hop Lives Here.

And aside from his ventures in music, Kapisi’s a bit of a wine connoisseur – he’s devoted a little time to designing his own Hip Hop Noir™ and Sauvignon Funk™.

The R18 day party will be held in the vines at Matakana’s Ascension Wine Estate, starting at 2pm and wrapping up at midnight. Book yourself a ticket and get sauvignon funky.
