We booked a half day tour of the Blenheim area. Hamish was our host and was delightful and fun to be with throughout the day. We were met by Hamish at the Blenheim airport for our tour. We first visited a local olive grower and had a great time learning about the various olive trees and the different olive oils that are produced in the Blenheim region as well as around the world. We then toured a local English garden that was beautiful. We moved on to a tour of a local herb grower and that tour was very interesting. After lunch at a local winery, we did a wine tasting at another vineyard. We finished our tour with a behind the scenes tour of a winery- they walked us through each step of the process, from the collection of grapes to the bottling of the finished product, and showed us the equipment used for each step of the process
A very relaxing and delightful day, meeting with local growers and seeing some of the behind the scenes activity. Hamish was a terrific host and we would highly recommend the tour to others.
