The voucher can be redeemed at one of 300 restaurants across the UK and a full list of participating restaurants can be viewed on the website. The promotion runs for seven months across multiple grocers, independents and specialist convenience and is visible via a neck collarette on bottle, which also features new packaging.
Nobilo is the UK’s third biggest New Zealand brand and the Regional Collection range includes the new 2009 vintage of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and a Merlot from Hawkes Bay. The brand has a long-standing association with seafood with past promotional activity including winning a weekend at Rick Stein cookery school and sponsorship of the National seafood week.

Nobilo Regional Collection Sauvignon Blanc 2009 has a crisp and zesty backbone combines with fresh tropical fruit sweetness. Excellent weight and balance, this wine lingers on the palate in a full, refreshing finish.
Nobilo Regional Collection Merlot 2006 has sweet, mouth filling berry fruit flavours, overlaying a structure of fine grained tannins. The palate is full and soft with a seemless melding of fruit and oak. A touch of mocha and spice combines to with subtle vanilla oak characters to provide depth and complexity on the palate.
