Wine critic Belinda Jackson will discuss wine and food matching, and Chris Fortune will talk about his enthusiasm for local food and for recipes that demonstrate the unique taste and flavour of Marlborough food.
Tastings of his recipes will be available, and copies of his cookbooks and of cookbooks by other Marlborough authors will be on sale.
Visitors will be able to taste Auntsfield wines and place an order at 20 per cent discount for their favourites.
The event has been co-organised by store assistant Janet Steggle.
'We are trying to tie in events with what's going on in the community,' she said.
'Obviously the focus here is on the local aspect of the Marlborough Wine Festival and the Marlborough Farmers' Market.'
