This is a full day with great service, You are picked up from your Picton accomodation and driven to the vineyards in Marlborough. We had tastings at St Clair, Allan Scott, Wither Hills, Framingham, Spy Valley and Whitehaven, Lunch at Wither Hills was lovely. A final stop at Makana Chocolate Factory before driving back to Picton. It was a varied group from different countries which made for a great experience. It is very laid back, no pressure to buy and a lovely way to experience the wonderful wine and scenery of Marlborough. Would definitely recommend.

We did the full day wine tour from Picton on a Wednesday. We were taken to six different wineries and a chocolate stop. All the wineries were very attentive and provided info and lunch at St Clair was delicious. We had an interesting group of people to share this with - 9 of us in total. The only reason I haven't given this 5 stars is that it felt we were driven everywhere by a driver and lacking a bit of info with on nearly every occasion someone having to ask where we were going. A great day but just not quite. But if not being talked to all day appeals - perfect for you though I imagine different drivers would be different from reading other reviews.

We (3 of us) did a day trip from Wellington to sunny Picton last weekend. We took the morning ferry and then got picked up by the tour from the ferry terminal. We visited 4 stunning wineries in Marlborough and had plenty of tasters included. We had an absolute blast and the weather was just perfect!! Only little suggestion would be to include time for a snack at the winery with the cafe for people to have an extra 20 mins to sit outside and eat because we all had breakfast but not enough time when arriving by ferry to have lunch before the tour.
Would recommend it to anyone looking for a day out though, absolutely stunning :)

Dear Shirelle S, We enjoyed taking your group around the wonderful Marlborough wineries - thanks so much for reviewing your trip and for all the great comments about your time with Sounds Connection. Very glad to hear how much you enjoyed the choice of wineries and our great weather! Thanks for the suggestion about a snack too - it is a good point for those arriving from Wellington on the ferry, although we find some people are anxious to concentrate on the wines only! We really appreciate the recommendation. With thanks, The Sounds Connection team

Brilliant day touring the vineyards. Sam was very knowledgeable regarding the area and wines. In all the years of coming down to Marlborough we had never done a wine tour and we would recommend to anyone who hasn’t. We learnt a lot about the area and it made visiting the vineyards so much more relaxing when none of us had to drive.
Sam was very patient and never rushed us. We even had time to do a few extra stops that he had worked out we would like. Highly recommend

We had a brilliant day of wine tasting with a lovely group of friendly wine lovers. We were picked up promptly at the time stated and dropped off again at the end of the day at our accommodation which was so helpful. Our driver, Marcella was possibly the friendliest New Zealander we have met so far- full of life and love a real pleasure to be around. The wineries were fab and we came away with a few purchases. Would definitely recommend if you have the time!
