A Tipple and a Nibble in Picton

If you are campervanning in or around Picton in February, get your camper in gear and drive the 30km to Blenhiem on Saturday the 11th, for the annual Marlborough Wine and Food Festival.

The festival has something for everyone- Fashion in the Vines, a show of couture delights, Wine tutorials to impress dinner guests with your knowledge, a wine and food matching contest, and an array of local food and wines to be sampled.  New Zealand artists Dane Rumble and Hello Sailor will provide the tunes, and the region of Marlborough will supply the edibles and drinkables for purchase. Nearly 50 wineries are represented, from the well-known Villa Maria and Montana to smaller family-owned and boutique businesses such as Fairhall Downs and Johanneshof. Marlborough is a region known for it's amazing food and wine, and this festival showcases it all in one place. Don't miss it!
