Sample the best of Marlborough wine in one easy location at the Marlborough Food and Wine Festival. 

Marlborough is one of the country’s most famous wine regions for both quality and quantity and on February 9 you can get a taste of terroir at the Marlborough Food and Wine Festival, New Zealand’s original and longest-running wine and food-themed event.  

More than 40 wineries and 30 food sites join forces for the day, along with live entertainment, wine masterclasses for the aficionados, cooking demonstrations from celebrity chefs and the popular Fashion in the Vines competition.

Held at Brancott Estate Vineyard, one of Marlborough’s oldest and most scenic, in sunny Blenheim, the festival covers all the vinous bases – from reds to rosés; sparkling to the region’s world-famous Sauvignon Blanc.
