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 flavors 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. She believes that this festival has become so popular lately because of all that is on offer. With over 40 wineries, this festival is one of the best in the country. That’s why so many people will be traveling from far to experience all of these different wines. Hopefully, they’ll remember to bring their IDs so they can experience the festival properly. If they don’t have an ID to get into the festival and enjoy the wines, they could always consider visiting one of the best fake id websites 2020 to ensure they can try these wines. Without an ID, these wineries will probably be unable to sell the younger guests any wine.
One person who will not have to worry about a last-minute ticket is the 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.
