Allan Scott weds winning couple

Allan Scott Family Winemakers is popping the bubbles and footing the bill for one lucky couple who could win an unforgettable wedding reception at the Marlborough vineyard with its quintessential mountain backdrop setting.

The winning newlyweds will celebrate their nuptials with 80 of their nearest and dearest amongst some of the oldest vines in the region, with a wedding reception at Allan Scott Family Winemakers’ highly-acclaimed on premise restaurant, Twelve Trees.

Named after the walnut trees that line the entrance to the winery, the stunning wedding venue was recently crowned by Nelmac Garden Marlborough with the ‘Best Hospitality Frontage’ award for its gorgeous garden setting.

“We know that weddings are a celebratory yet stressful time, and this campaign ticks off one of the hardest tasks that usually takes up most of the budget for one lucky couple.

Combining our extensive wine offering, beautiful landscape setting and some of the freshest food in the region, it’s only fitting that our Twelve Trees restaurant doubles as the perfect wedding reception venue,” says Allan Scott Family Winemakers Marketing Manager, Michelle Burns.

The prize, valued at $15,000, includes the venue, table decorations, gourmet set menu developed by esteemed chef Lawrence Purser and hospitality package for up to 80 guests.

Each bottle of Allan Scott Cecilia Méthode Traditionnelle and Allan Scott Estate wine currently on sale contains a neck tag with a unique entry code and information prompting customers to head to to enter their details.

The promotion runs from 27 February until May 31, 2017. The winners will be drawn on June 5 and the prize can be redeemed during the 2017-18 wedding season (excluding January and public holidays).

Bottles can be purchased online, through grocery, traditional and on premise distribution and from cellar door.
