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 wineries produce 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.

Book this Picton shore excursion today for a delectable and savory way to wine down.

Relaxing day

The tour was in a small 12 person van vs the large bus. Our driver was very knowledgeable on the area and the operation of making wines. Lots of information shared you would not get on the large tours. A relaxing day.

It was easy to meet-up from the ship and there were 8 of us on the tour. Our driver was excellent and we visited 3 wineries. I wish there had been more about growing grapes, but still this was an excellent tour and I would highly recommend it.

The winery tour was very nice. We went to 5 wineries and chocolate factory. The wineries were very informative and the atmosphere at each them was very nice. We had lunch on our own at one of the wineries. We enjoyed the small group excursion. There were only 10 of us. It made it much nicer.

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!
