The Nutrition Society of New Zealand would love for you to join us at the 2019 conference social on the evening of Thursday 28th November.

The social will be hosted at The Urban Winery, Cellar Door and Wine Bar in Ahuriri, Napier.

Transport will be provided from EIT after the Muriel Bell lecture and on arrival to the social, platters and a wine tasting (or first non-wine drink) will be served. This is complementary, with thanks to Beef + Lamb New Zealand for sponsoring. Transport will be provided at the end of the evening from The Urban Winery back to your accommodation.

There is an option to stay on for a fun, interactive game called Jingo (musical bingo) free of charge, as well as purchasing dinner (tapas) at your own expense at the Urban Winery or elsewhere. If you have selected you are attending the social on your registration, we will be in touch to confirm if you need transport both ways, and if you will be staying on for Jingo and dinner. The following restaurants have been recommended by our local conference committee member and food writer, Andrea Bidois:
