We're celebrating the Young Winemaker of the Year in the only way we know how, Bands, Wine, Food Trucks and Good Banter. Come along to celebrate the young talent that's from the South Island and high five the regional winner for the Tonnellerie de Mercurey NZ Young Winemaker of the Year Competition. Now in its third year, the competition is about finding the best winemaking talent in New Zealand under 30, as well as providing education and support for those in the industry. The South Island winner takes home cash the title then goes onto compete in Auckland for the ultimate prize of becoming NZ Young Winemaker of the Year.

You'll be treated to local bands and DJ's along with a headline act and live entertainment all night long. Food trucks will be serving some of the tastiest produce known in Marlborough. The Bar will be open from 5 pm - 10:45 pm, serving up some of the greatest wines known to mankind and we all know it takes a lot of beer to make great wine so we'll organise some beers for purchase. You'll also have an opportunity to have your say by voting in the 'People's Choice' round for your favourite wine made by the regional contestants during the competition that day.

A ticket to the greatest party this winter will set you back $35 which includes a glass of bubbles on arrival. Come along and support the next generation of young winemaking talent here in Marlborough.
