With a winemaker is your tour guide you will see places you'd never see on a traditional tour! Exclusive to Hop 'n Grape Tours we'll take you beyond the cellar door and into the winery cellar! You'll swill the best - spit the rest and, have a good ol' time seeing the Marlborough sights. Whether you're thirsty for wine or thirsty for knowledge, Hop n Grape will show you the V.I.P treatment in Marlborough. If you have had enough world famous wine we can visit a local brewery where you'll find cold beer or if you have a sweet tooth we can visit a Chocolate factory. You'll have a cracker day which is relaxed, informative and unforgettable... Hop 'n Grape!

A really interesting tour with Cam, he is very knowledgeable but explains how wine is grown and made simply. Lots of great wines tasted, and it was special going behind the scenes in a winery.
