Summer Feast

  • Thu 28 Jan - Fri 02 Apr

Feast Marlborough has been working on a Summer Feast series, liaising with producers and wine companies to craft events that will keep locals and visitors busy over February and March, says Feast chair Fiona Fenwick. Summer Feast is about getting Marlborough’s food and beverage sector buzzing over the summer period and showcasing the great produce from the region, she adds. “There’s going to be something for everyone - and lots to attract visitors from around New Zealand too.”

Late last year, the Marlborough Winegrowers board announced the Marlborough Wine & Food Festival was cancelled, to help protect the 2021 harvest from the threat of Covid-19. Chair Tom Trolove said at the time that while it wasn’t a good time for 8,000 people to gather on a vineyard site, “it’s a fantastic time to visit Marlborough’s cellar doors and get an extraordinary insight into what makes this region’s wines amazing”.

Summer Feast is being run by the Feast Marlborough Charitable Trust with support from TEAM (The Economic Action Marlborough group) and the Marlborough District Council. All events, when confirmed, are listed on marlboroughnz.com/events/
