Only a Handful of Tickets Left for Marlborough Wine and Food Festival
With just hours to go until the 34th annual Marlborough Wine and Food Festival, only a handful of tickets are left for sale. All on-line tickets have been sold, with the few remaining tickets only available at the Blenheim’s iSITE and Blenheim New World. There will be no gate sales on the day. You better be quick if you want to learn about all the best wine and food pairings so that you can be the perfect host when you’re next entertaining. It’s also pretty useful to know just so that you can enjoy some complimentary flavours yourself!
Festival spokesperson Harriet Wadworth says while they are thrilled with the near sell out, she is not surprised. “With over 40 wineries and 25 food stalls on-site, an amazing line-up on entertainment including the New Zealand All Stars, and the incredibly popular Culinary Pavilion, the festival is once again proving why it is the country’s longest running,” she said.
One person who will not have to worry about a last-minute ticket is top Australian chef, Manu Feildel, who has announced this morning he will be in the Culinary Pavilion, thanks to Cloudy Bay Clams. He will join other noted chefs, including; Annabelle White, Karena and Kasey Bird, Colin Fassnidge, Nick Honeyman and MC Martin Bosley.
The Marlborough Wine and Food Festival began back in 1985 when the region was home to only five wineries. It has since grown in size and stature as the ultimate event showcasing the gourmet food alongside the world-class wine that Marlborough has to offer. The Festival is being held at Brancott Vineyard, rain or shine, with gates opening at 10.30am on Saturday February 10.
