If you follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Pinterest you’ll know that The Lifestyle Department co-founders Sam and Charles were recently lucky enough to be invited to Marlborough in New Zealand. If you’ve glimpsed even one of the spectacular photos they took you’ve probably been wondering what would constitute a good excuse to get there yourself. Well you can stop the wondering right now because we have the excuse to end all excuses.
On Saturday the 8th of February 2014, Marlborough is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Marlborough Wine and Food Festival. What started out 30 years ago as a little festival that was just about the wine has snowballed over the years to a spectacular celebration involving more than 60 wineries, literally hundreds of wines and grown to include food from local producers and prepared by celebrity chefs. There’s also an increasingly popular Fashion in the Vines competition and of course, music.
Tickets to the festival are $55.00 NZD plus booking fee and include access to the festival, the culinary pavilion and tastings (yum!).
For more information visit Marlborough Wine and Food Festival online or check out the gorgeous video they recently released, below (the soundtrack is Doo Bop by Iva Lamkum who will be at the 2014 festival).
