Marlborough Wine Weekend 2011

Wine lovers rejoice! It’s almost time for the 2011 Marlborough Wine Weekend, food and wine extravaganza over the weekend of 28 to 30 October.



This biennial event spans a three days and affords guests the opportunity to partake of high quality wine and cuisine, famous Marlborough hospitality and some truly stunning landscapes.


The weekend commences with a picnic brunch in the picturesque grounds of the historic Timara Lodge.


After brunch guests will be split into groups and taken to different local wineries to attend classes at which some of the region’s leading winemakers will share their insights into making and blending wine. There will also be a wine and cheese matching session as part of the second master class.


Marlborough’s top chefs are hosting a Twilight Garden Party at Timara Lodge at which they will prepare a range of tasty dishes to complement the local wines being served.


Day two is equally action-packed, with intimate tours of the region’s key winegrowing areas, led by wine-makers and viticulturists followed by a Long Lunch with a focus on Marlborough aromatics. In the evening guests will be treated to a Marlborough Gourmet Feast cooked by guest chef Des Harris from Auckland’s Clooney restaurant. Des will create a sumptuous menu to match a selection of rare vintage Marlborough wines.


A Sunday cruise in the Marborough Sounds rounds off this “once in a lifetime experience” for wine enthusiasts and bon vivants.
