The fourth and final round of the monthly series of the Marlborough Winemakers Wine Options was held at Drylands restaurant on Friday 12 October. Andrew Parkinson of Negociants N.Z. Ltd conducted the game for his second year. The final round has become a costumed affair and a fun finale to the series of games that has brought many of the Marlborough winemaking community together. Andrew said it was “a hoot” and dressed up (quite appropriately?) as ‘The Mad Hatter’.
