Marlborough Winemakers Wine Options 2013 – Round Two

By September 13, 2013No Comments
The second round of the Marlborough Winemakers Wine Options scheduled for 18 August was postponed due to the Seddon earthquake, and held on Friday 13 September. To accommodate the proposed four rounds, a game has been added in on 4 October, before the finale on 18 October.

For the delayed second round, the MC was experienced wine man Jim Harré, well known for his wide judging roles, wine selection position for Air New Zealand, and arguably more importantly for his raconteur skills. Committee member Bec Wiffen reports it was a great night with some excellent stories.
