Marlborough, is of course, #brillianteveryday, but Spring has sprung and it has to be one of the best seasons of the year… (Apart from Summer, Autumn and Winter, which are pretty special too 😉!)
Here are three reasons that we think Spring in Marlborough is #brilliant:
- The Sounds – No not the Sounds! Although, they are superb! We’re talking birdsong, as the mornings get lighter the delightful dawn chorus seems to get sweeter! Maybe, it’s because we don’t mind being awake as early, with milder, longer days to fill. The sounds of Marlborough are going to be especially good come 25th November as Ocean Vine Hop welcomes a stellar lineup of musical entertainment for your listening (and grooving) pleasure to the First National Real Estate Main Stage… You’ll be WOWed by the Jordan Luck Trio, Jason Kerrison and Shane Cortese & The 8 Track Band.
- The Sights – What a vista Marlborough offers us all year round, but in Spring time it’s in full bloom! On 25th November the New Zealand King Salmon Culinary Marquee will offer even more sizzling sights to delight you, as celebrity chef, Jax Hamilton brings her high energy and entertaining enthusiasm to Marlborough, offering her twist on some super seafood recipes.
- The Tastes – Spring is the season for fresh produce and new vintage releases to tantalise your taste buds. Ocean Vine Hop is delighted to be the first R18 festival in the Marlborough region that combines seafood, wine and beer in one gastronomic extravaganza! Sip delicious wines from three distinctive Marlborough producers, Allan Scott Family Winemakers, Yealands Family Wines and Wairau River Wines. With a selection of craft and mainsteam beers on offer and delicious Marlborough Cider you’ll easily quench your thirst after all that dancing. Feast on the eats from the various food stalls, there will be Whitebait, Paua, Mussels, Kina Shots, Fish Curries, Fish Tacos, Seafood Mie Goreng… And so much more, you won’t know where to start!
