Mud House was in the thick of the action at the 34th Marlborough Wine and Food Festival, this time offering festival goers a unique souvenir from the day.
Featuring more than 60 Marlborough wineries and food producers, this sell-out occasion attracts more than 8,000 locals and visitors each year from around the world to celebrate all things food and wine.
Mud House fans took home a Polaroid photo of themselves sampling the wine - a real novelty in a digital world.
The Mud House Festival site was inspired by the Woolshed Vineyard’s smoko room in the upper Wairau Valley. As always, it made for a great meeting spot for new faces, old friends, and local growers.
As well as favourites like the new release 2017 Mud House Single Vineyard Woolshed Sauvignon Blanc and the 2017 Mud House Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, the team also offered wine lovers the chance to sample the Mud House Sub Region Series range. This range offers a close up look at the diverse sub regions of Marlborough, which winemaker Cleighten Cornelius describes as “Allowing the varieties, like Sauvignon Blanc from Rapaura, to sing the voice of the soils they came from.”
The most popular drops of the day were the 2017 Mud House Sub Region Series Burleigh Pinot Rosé and the 2017 Mud House Sub Region Series Grovetown Pinot Gris. Thanks to a bit of rain drifting about, the 2016 Mud House Sub Region Series The Narrows Pinot Noir, and the 2014 Mud House Single Vineyard Dambuster Pinot Noir also went down a treat.
Each year the Festival provides an excellent opportunity for the Mud House team to show off a great range of wines in a relaxed atmosphere, helping wine and food enthusiasts to get a bit of what they love best.
