Full-Day Taste the Wines of Marlborough Tour
From US$104.31
Leave the choice of wineries up to a guide while you relax on a wine-tasting tour of Marlborough. With a small group you’ll visit the vineyards and step through the cellar doors of up to five wineries in this famed wine region. Take in the scenery aboard transport from Blenheim. Then top off your day with a sampling of gourmet chocolates. The opportunity to purchase lunch is included.
What to Expect
Your local guide will be waiting at 10am at your local Blenheim hotel with the new 12 seat air-conditioned minibus. Transfers from the airport or Picton can also be arranged.
Relax during the scenic short drive to the Marlborough vineyards, where you will visit up to 5 wineries. We select a range of the large, through to the small family-run wineries, where you can taste the zesty Sauvignon Blancs and a wide variety of our other tasty cultivars. Beginners will be guided through the wines on offer by the cellar door staff and connoisseurs can debate the merits of their favorites. This fun, flexible and informative tour is designed to appeal to all visitors with a love of wine, no matter how detailed their knowledge.
Visit the barrel rooms to experience the rich aromas of wine maturing in French oak barrels, then follow your guide for a walk and talk through a vineyard to learn the secrets of how climate, soil and wine-makers’ skill that makes this Sauvignon unique in the world. 
Spoil yourself with regional seafood delicacies during the lunch stop at a vineyard restaurant (at your own cost), then continue the wine tasting until it is time to return to your accommodation. A stop at the Chocolate factory to taste their hand made gourmet chocolates, is a brilliant way to end this exceptional day.
