Ripe is a proud asset to the Central Lakes Community.

We are supported by an amazing group of businesses, all keen to make this event a permanent fixture on the Wine and Food calendar.

Forsyth Barr Wanaka connecting to our community.

Forsyth Barr Wanaka Investment Advisers Phil Burke and Ben Taylor are active members of the Wanaka Community.

They have chosen to show their support to Ripe Festival for the long-term, wanting to help our community showcase the premium products made by our amazing local Wine and Food producers.

Together, Ripe and Forsyth Barr will grow this event to have the local and national audience it deserves. This partnership is perfectly matched with both parties offering premium services while showcasing a love of the local community and passion to grow.

Forsyth Barr offers a world-class team of advisers right here in New Zealand, delivering innovative financial services and investment opportunities, supported by award-winning local and global research.

Forsyth Barr Wanaka are happy to help and keen to connect with the community, find their tent on festival day and stop in for a chat with the friendly team.
