We thought they were taking a break to work on their solo careers, but it turns out Sol3 Mio enjoyed their previous Christmas in the Vines shows so much they're returning to New Zealand this December for another round.

The beloved trio will not only be returning to Villa Maria Winery in Auckland on Sunday, December 18, and Waipara Hills Winery in Canterbury on Saturday, December 17, but they will also be bringing the Christmas cheer to Wellington's Waitangi Park for the first time on Thursday December 15.

Tenor Pene Pati says: "The first year we performed Christmas In The Vines I proposed to my now wife.

Last year Moses stole the show singing Elvis with his dad and we got a selfie with all 9000 people at Villa Maria.


This year we're excited to bring Christmas in the Vines to Wellington! We know there's no vines at the Waitangi Park, but it's an amazing venue and we'll be bringing the seasonal spirit, no matter what."

Brothers Pene and Amitai Pati and their cousin Moses Mackay will perform their signature mix of opera arias, traditional songs, a selection of hits from their two albums and favourite Christmas carols while you can picnic under the stars and get an early dose of Christmas cheer.

Tickets go on sale on Thursday July 21.
