UK Wine Show 233 Martinborough Vineyards with Paul Mason
This show was published 11 November 2010
Paul Mason is winemaker at Martinborough Vineyards, one of the first wineries to put Martinborough on the map as a wine region. We talk about Pinot Noir, the grape the region is best known for.
Martinborough was established as a wine region in the 1980's and Martinborough Vineyards was one of the first four to plant grapes there. The focus of production is Pinot Noir, making up 70% of the winery's output, followed by Sauvignon Blanc at 15% and a host of other varieties making up the remainder. We hear how things have progressed since the first vintage in 1984 and how trials are shaping up to see how the Pinot is ageing under screwcap compared to cork.
The UK Wine Show is sponsored by ThirtyFifty. Our team of wine tasters are busy entertaining and educating UK consumers to help them get the most out of wine.
The music used for the UK Wine Show is Griffes de Jingle 1 by Marcel de la Jartèle and Silence by Etoile Noire.
