Patrick Materman, Chief Winemaker for Brancott Estate flew in from New Zealand to join over 60 wine enthusiasts in the Cliff Town House this week to celebrate the brand’s name change from Montana to Brancott Estate. On the night he treated guests to a wine tasting, guiding them through the finer points of Brancott Estate’s signature Sauvignon Blanc, as well as its punchy Pinot Noir and Pinot Grigio. Guests included Lynda Cody of Irish Distillers Pernod Ricard, wine writer Liam Campbell and Aoife Cox of The Daily Spud blog.
