New Zealand is arguably the world leader with Sauvignon Blanc. Around three-quarters of this country’s production is Sauvignon Blanc and it comprises over 85% of Marlborough’s production. The International Sauvignon Blanc Celebration takes its turn with the Pinot Noir N.Z. Conference every two years to showcase our two most important grape varieties. Sauvignon 2019 follows on from the very successful inaugural 2016 event. It is designed to show the complexity of Sauvignon Blanc, emerging styles, vineyard practices, winemaking influences, and discusses the future with the variety. Attendees will be able to taste over 200 samples from around the world, and learn from experts in the fields of science, research, journalism and gastronomy.

The three day programme is broken down to themes. Day One is ‘Place’ and will cover the variety’s place in the world, sense of place and regional styles. Day Two is ‘Purity’ and will cover the factor of climate freshness essential for the vine, lighter wines, sustainability and longevity, as well as food matching. Day Three is ‘Pursuit’ and will cover sales channels and features including quality and consumer expectations.

Every day will have authoritative speakers of note from within New Zealand and from around the world. There will be featured tastings each day, these being an ‘International Tasting’, a tasting of ‘Classic Sauvignon Blanc’ and ‘Alternative Sauvignon Blanc Styles’. The culinary programme will be special, with the features of a Garden Party at Paripuma Gardens, a Gala Dinner at Brancott Vineyard, and an evening at the Marisco River hutt.

There will be an expected 400+ attendees, targeting renowned wine experts, influencers, local and international producers, trade and wine enthusiasts from around the world.
