Marlborough Wine and Food Festival
Brancott Vineyard, Blenheim: Saturday 11th February 2017

The Marlborough Wine & Food Festival is New Zealand’s original and longest running wine festival. The reason for its continual success is that it is set at the heart of New Zealand's premier wine region and enjoys almost guaranteed good weather (the last time it rained on festival day was over a decade ago). As event sponsors and keen supporters, Interislander is offering discounted ferry travel to the event (see below for details).

This year the fabulous event returns to the Brancott Estate on 11th February 2017. Among the regular treats are world class wines from over 40 local wineries, gourmet cuisine from 28 food stalls and delicious local produce all in one of Marlborough's most beautiful locations.
