Arriving at Bladen is like arriving at a friend’s place, given the warm welcome you will get from owners Dave and Christine Macdonald. Built alongside their home, and backing onto the vines, this modest cellar is a haven away from the fast pace of life.
Things To Know
The name Bladen is a derivative of the Macdonalds’ children’s names, Blair and Deni, and is just one of the indications of how family-oriented this company is. The Bladen grapes were first planted in 1989, when there were only eight cellar doors in Marlborough.
It’s hard to go past the gewurztraminer, an outstanding example of this variety.
