Scoop Images: Taste Martinborough

Images from the weekend’s 10th annual Taste Martinborough event, a sellout with 10,500 tickets sold.

13 vineyards participated. Each supplied its own wines for tasting or more serious drinking, and each also provided food, supplied by top restaurants in the Wairarapa and from Wellington.

The weather was perfect - sunny, but with a light southerly wind preventing it from getting too hot. Real relaxed and happy atmosphere everywhere.
