    Stop: 5 hours - Admission included
    Tour the famous Marlborough vineyards, tasting the wines and learning some of the secrets of why the wines win awards throughout the world. A stop is made for lunch (own cost) at a vineyard restaurant. Your expert local guide will collect you from your Blenheim accommodation ($40 surcharge for collection and return to Picton). Travel on board our luxury minibus through the scenic Marlborough wine region while your wine guide discusses the wines and vineyards; this small-group tour is limited to 10 people to ensure a more intimate atmosphere. You will visit up to five cellar doors on a flexible schedule around the Marlborough vineyards - we try to match our wines to your particular tastes. Learn how Marlborough's sauvignon blanc has reached the pinnacle of sophistication, then take a stroll through a vineyard and learn how climate, soil, and skill combine to make an award-winning wine. Marlborough is not all about Sauvignon Blanc - we have stunning Rieslings, crisp and fruity Pinot Gris, oaked and unoaked Chardonnay and our renown Pinot Noir. A stop will be made for lunch (own expense), featuring delicacies such as mussels, salmon, venison or beef when available. Alternatively, a light meal of gourmet local cheeses to pair with your wine might suffice. On the way home, we stop at a local chocolate factory for a nibble of hand-made gourmet chocolates. We try to make this a truly memorable day !

It was lovely to meet you guys and thanks for the awesome review. Going out and about to some of our wineries is always a fun, rewarding day, but thanks for your support. The "virus" hasn't spoiled that part of our lives and so it's fun to be able to get out there tasting again. All the best.

Hi Marilyn. I'm so glad that you enjoyed your tour and experienced some of our outstanding wines. It was a pleasure taking the group around and giving you a better understanding of our industry. The chocolate factory is definitely my favorite stop (I get to taste !). Enjoy the rest of your holiday

Enjoyable time with Mike. We have been to many wineries all over the world and still learned a considerable amount on this tour. Very relaxing pace but covered a lot of ground.
