Marlborough Winemakers Wine Options 2013 – The Finals

By October 18, 2013No Comments
The final round of the Marlborough Winemakers Wine Options was held at Drylands Restaurant on Friday 18 October. It was the culmination of a series of competitions held over winter. The final is a fun, dress-up affair, and was run by Andrew Parkinson of Negociants N.Z/ Ltd, as usual. By all accounts it was a great and entertaining night, and the wine were challenging. The overall winners were ‘Truckin’ Beers Hours Later’, a team no stranger to the winners circle.
