Wine and design combine for WOW factor

Brancott Estate releases new limited edition series

To celebrate their continued support of World of WearableArt (WOW), Brancott Estate is releasing four limited edition bottles in the lead up to the 2014 World of WearableArt Awards Show season.

The new Brancott Estate Limited Edition WOW Series captures the spirit of four of the designs from the 2013 show: Turangawaewae, Labyrinth, Bobby Dazzler and 25th Jubilee Guest. The limited edition bottles focus on the intricate details of the garments they represent, highlighting the elements that reflect the wine they adorn.

A proud supporter of WOW since 1998, Brancott Estate has released limited edition WOW bottles annually since 2012. This year, the Brancott Estate Limited Edition WOW Series includes Brancott Estate Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2014, Brancott Estate Pinot Noir 2012, Brancott Estate Chardonnay 2013 and Brancott Estate Pinot Gris 2014.

The Brancott Estate Limited Edition WOW Series coincides with the annual, non-stop spectacular World of WearableArt Awards Show season, running from 25 September to 12 October 2014 in Wellington.

“As the pioneers of wines that helped define the Marlborough wine region, we understand the passion and commitment required to create a world-first event like WOW,” says Patrick Materman, Brancott Estate Chief Winemaker. “WOW began with Dame Suzie Moncrieff’s pioneering vision to take art off the wall to adorn the body and has evolved into a stunning world-renowned extravaganza. We are proud to continue to support this innovative event.”

Dame Suzie Moncrieff, Founder of WOW, says "This limited edition wine range from Brancott Estate is such a beautiful outworking of creativity and innovation. Our special relationship and the depth of feeling shared between WOW and Brancott Estate is captured with each bottle."

The Brancott Estate Limited Edition WOW Series will be exclusively available in New Zealand from early September from leading liquor retailers while stocks last (RRP $17.29).
