The combination can be heady-jazz, good wine and great food.
It’s reason enough to devote a Saturday afternoon to it.
The Clevedon Jazz Wine and Food Festival is on March 9 from 12pm-5pm at the Auckland Polo Grounds, Clevedon.
Grab a picnic blanket and head to Clevedon valley to soak in the crisp air with the sound of some of New Zealand’s finest award-winning jazz and soul-funk musicians.
Gates open at 11.30am. Brian Smith Quartet-12pm; followed by Phil Broadhurst Quintet at 1.20pm, Superhero Second Line-2.40pm and Mister Speaker 4pm.
