A RUN ON WINE

Cuisine - - CRISPY BITS -

There will be a Kiwi con­tin­gent at next year’s Marathon du Me­doc – a mad­cap run­ning event held every Septem­ber in Bordeaux. Cen­tral Otago win­ery Woo­ing Tree has helped cre­ate (along with ad­ven­ture travel com­pany Dream It) a tour of France that has the event as its cen­tre­piece. “It’s all about a good time,” says Woo­ing Tree co-owner Steve Far­quhar­son. “The run takes in 59 his­toric wine es­tates where fine food and wine are on of­fer. Run­ners wear fancy dress. It’s the ul­ti­mate fun run… some peo­ple ac­tu­ally walk most of the course.” If you’re in­ter­ested in be­ing part of it, con­tact Michelle Mor­peth at michelle@ woo­ingtree.co.nz
