Marlborough wineries received almost 300 medals at the Easter Show Wine Awards.

They brought home a total 280 medals, of those 47 were gold, 90 silver and 143 bronze.

Director Shona White said there were 1217 entries this year.

The judges complimented the great 2013 New Zealand vintage and the display of depth and understanding in sauvignon blanc.

Trophy winners would be announced at the Easter Show Wine Awards dinner at Auckland's ASB Showgrounds next month.
