BLENHEIM, MARLBOROUGH – The Wine Station, the new wine and food concept which opened in February is taking part in the annual Feast Marlborough for the first time.
The wine and food experience on offer for Feast Marlborough on 12th May has sold out and guests include one of Marlborough’s pioneer winemakers, Kevin Judd, who will be in attendance to represent his own label, Greywacke which features as the “Wine of the Month” for May.
The Wine Station prides itself on being a leader in Marlborough food and wine. It is a unique concept where visitors can sample from a selection of 80 premium Marlborough wines by the glass, hand-picked from across the region. Located at the newly renovated 1906 heritage building, Blenheim Railway Station, it is a show piece for Marlborough wine and artisan food products.
Kevin Judd is one of Marlborough’s pioneer winemakers whose career is intrinsically linked with the global profile of New Zealand wine. Renown as a founding winemaker at Cloudy Bay, an esteemed photographer as well as for his own label established in 2009, Greywacke, which is named after New Zealand’s prolific bedrock.
Comments Kevin Judd, “We are really looking forward to presenting our wines alongside some great food with the team at The Wine Station this weekend. The wines we make at Greywacke are our own individual style and we always enjoy having the opportunity to share them – especially Greywacke Wild Sauvignon, an alternative style, indigenous yeast fermented, barrel aged interpretation of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.”
Comments Michelle Osgood, manager of The Wine Station, “The Wine Station is the ideal place for people to meet, taste, and enjoy Marlborough wine, and food. We are incredibly proud to be hosting one of Marlborough’s iconic winemaking personalities to share his insights and incredible knowledge with our guests. This is the ‘cherry on the top’ of what will be an incredible evening.”
