Defy July

by | Jul 11, 2024 | News

Ready for a wonderful weekend of fine food and frivolity?

July can be hard. It’s the middle of winter. It can be cold. It can be dreary. And if you’re one of the fine souls raising money for cancer sufferers and doing Dry July, it can be even tougher. Unless, of course, you’re an oyster lover.

Oysters are at their absolute best in the colder months. We will be there with oysters on sale this month to help raise your spirits.


Join Mahurangi Oysters from the 25th to the 28th of July for a celebration of the taste buds.  It’s going to be busy!

Winetopia, the largest wine-tasting event in New Zealand, is back in Auckland and we’ll be there at Viaduct Events Centre on the 26th and 27th of July.

Sample our exquisite oysters, meet passionate winemakers, immerse yourself in the captivating world of wine and toast to the joys of great New Zealand wine and culinary delights. You’ll discover an incredible line-up of delicious food expertly paired with some of New Zealand’s finest wines and Mahurangi Oysters will be there with our beautifully fresh oysters to tantalise your taste buds. We’ll be madly shucking and serving up our succulent oysters to be enjoyed with our famous Virgin Mary shooters! Yes, in honour of those wonderful people going through Dry July, we’ll have delicious non-alcoholic shots to complement our oyster offerings.

But if being ‘wined and dined’ is not your cup of tea, then how about joining us at the Auckland Showgrounds?

Winetopia 2024

The Auckland Food Show has all the ingredients you need for a great day out! And we’ll be there at 217 Green Lane West from the 25th to the 28th of July.
