Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Begin with pickup at your centrally-located accommodations in Blenheim, where you’ll meet a local guide and travel to first winery of the day. Make the most of your time in the car by learning the basics of the Marlborough wine region’s history, climate, and wines.

    This small-group tour is designed for flexibility, so the itinerary varies: visit either four or five vineyards, and taste your way through the wines they produce. If there’s a kind of wine you prefer, please feel free to make requests while booking, so the local wine experts can work to choose the best wineries for your group.

    Throughout the tour, the guide will share stories and facts about Marlborough wines, making your tastings as informed and interesting as possible. This 4-hour wine tasting tour concludes with return transfer to your Blenheim accommodations, and drop-off at the Blenheim ferry is also available.

    We had a wonderful afternoon tour. We took the 1/2 day tour and I believe it was enough to get an appreciation of the Marlborough wine region. We visited 4 wineries and had a wonderful time. My only suggestion would be to have some snacks throughout the tour as food works

    The night before we were going to take the ferry from Wellington to Picton we panicked. We realized that the whole point of heading to Picton immediately followed by going to Blenheim was to visit the wineries. Had we picked and booked a tour? No. Did we realize that there is
