Marlborough Winemakers Wine Options 2014 – Round One

By July 18, 2014No Comments
The Marlborough Winemakers winter series of wine options kicked off with the game conducted by Scott Allan of Wino’s Liquor in Blenheim. This year saw a new venue, the game being held at Pernod Ricard’s Brancott Estate winery. This event is one of the major and serious social happenings in what is a generally quieter time of year, bringing together personnel from many of the wineries in the region. The game itself is educational and serves to remind the Marlborough wine industry of the wines of the world.
