WineWorks Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc Yacht Race

WineWorks Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc Yacht Race

Sorry this event has been and gone


  • Fri 6 Nov ’15, 8:00am – 5:00pm


Cook Strait, Waikawa to Wellington, Marlborough


All Ages

Yacht race across Cook Strait with skippers and crew battling the wind and swell of this notorious piece of water to land the new release of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc on our capital's shores. The race is loosely based on the traditional Beaujolais Nouveau, where the first Beaujolais wines were transported from France to the UK. Each yacht will carry a different bottle of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with trophies for the first yacht across the finish line as well as for the winners based on handicap. Back on shore in Wellington post- race, Wine Marlborough will be hosting their annual Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc tasting event which celebrates the arrival of the race yachts and their carefully stowed bottle of wine.
