The Wines of Marlborough Tour

Enjoy a comfortable trip to the beautiful Marlborough Wine Region, where the breathtaking Wairay Valley awaits covered by vineyards and surrounded by high mountains. Visit five to six different wineries, from the smallest boutique/family-owned wineries to the largest well-known brands.

Marlborough produces a wine style for every palate. Sample a variety of cool climate wines, including zesty Sauvignon Blancs, fruity aromatics, and smooth Pinot Noirs. Your professional, friendly guide shares knowledge about the wine region and its history, telling stories about wineries and their people.

Breathtaking scenery encompasses all the destinations on this tour. Stop for lunch (not included) at a local winery/restaurant, where another local specialty awaits: Marlborough greenshell mussels. Don't worry if you don't like mussels; other menu options are available. You can also try one of their gourmet platters filled with cheeses, meats, seafood, and chutneys.

Returning to Picton, stop at the local Makana chocolate factory to witness the production of their divine chocolates, sampling a sweet treat afterward. Depending on the time and the tour group's desires, you can stop at various other venues offering honey, olive oils, gifts, gelato, and other items.

Great guides, small groups and a really wonderful selection of wines! Would do it again in a heartbeat. The lunch at the Giesse winery, which was extra, was more than expected and well worth the extra cost. Really very good value for the money!

Lovely Day
January 24, 2020
We joined a group of about 8 plus guide and visited five wineries, had lunch at St. Clair Winery and thoroughly enjoyed the ride, the stops, and the company. The tour was a good value for our money, a fun experience, and left pleasant memories of that day.

Perfect Day in the Vineyards
January 18, 2020
Toured Marlborough Valley with Bev in early January. She was the perfect guide for our small group. We had 9 in her van, and she expertly wrangled us through 4 top notch vineyards. We sampled a broad range of wines and had a lovely lunch at the final stop. Highly recommend.
