A boogie at Brookby Hill


William Woodworth

A new event spotlighting Southern Valleys wine and spinning dancefloor fillers lands in Marlborough adding to an already busy Festival weekend.

Brookby Beats, which will take place on the 9th of February at Brookby Hill Vineyard, is ready to add to the explosion of fun in the sun with their Friday afternoon event the day before the Marlborough Wine & Food Festival.

The Brookby Hill Vineyard amphitheatre will play host to a range of wines from Two Rivers, Corofin, Sorrell, The Marlborist and Vandal, alongside delectable dishes from Karaka Kitchen, Boom Chef and Cloudy Bay Clams.

According to Shorona McLeay, Marketing Manager at Two Rivers, Brookby Beats was created as “an opportunity to celebrate the best of Marlborough, our love of this place through wine, food, and music while providing an immersive and intimate experience.

“Whether you're a wine connoisseur, music lover, or simply looking for a beautiful evening out, the event aims to offer something different and become a regular part of the Marlborough social calendar”.

Shorona credits the collaborative spirit and enthusiasm of fellow Southern Valleys' wine producers as vital in getting Brookby Beats underway.

"We're glad we've brought together some of the best Southern Valleys' wine producers, local foodie favourites and nationally beloved DJs in Beccie B and Murray Sweetpants to create an event with its own authentic feeling that we want to keep bringing back each year".

"By showcasing wines grown on the soil you're standing on and trying them alongside the winemakers in a relaxed, intimate party setting, we’re to add another opportunity for locals and out-of-towners to appreciate Marlborough to its fullest".

“We imagine Brookby Beats as a celebration for the wine community and the general public, and as part of a wonderful weekend in the region for years to come."
