About
A visit to New Zealand's premier wine region is incomplete without stopping by a winery for a tasting. This half-day Marlborough tour leaves the driving to a guide who selects four different wineries you’ll visit. Limited to 11 people, this small-group tour maintains an intimate atmosphere. Hotel pickup and drop-off is included from Picton or Blenheim.

Just the best way to spend an afternoon in Blenheim.
Aug 2021
My friend and I visited Blenheim and had a most enjoyable afternoon being taken around 4 wineries by Phil who picked us as arranged from our motel and dropped us back again afterwards.
Phil took us to the wineries that he thought would please our pallets. Phil was very friendly and most informative.
Would recommend this tour to anyone visiting the area

Great guide, wines and locations.
May 2020 • Couples
Starting with a convenient pickup, we headed off with Gavin, our guide who was brilliant throughout the afternoon. Super knowledgeable and friendly, made for a seamless and fun trip. Gorgeous region. Bonus of lovely co-tourists made it even better. The wine was delicious and we'll be getting through the chocolate well before it's best by date.
Thanks team!

Fantastic afternoon in Marlborough
My mom and I had a fantastic time on the half-day tour. Dean picked us up at our motel in Picton, and after picking up another person from the ferry, he even kindly drove to her motel so she could drop off her luggage. We then drove to meet up with the rest of our group, stopping on the way to see the beautiful Spring Creek.

We met Phil and the rest of our group at Saint Clair, the first winery we visited, and then went on to visit Alan Scott, Framingham, and Hunter’s Wines. Phil was so fun, helpful, and knowledgeable, and he did such a great job of curating four very different but lovely wineries for us to try. We learned so much about the region and the history of the wineries we visited, and obviously tasted a lot of amazing wine. Our group got along really well, and we had a great time getting to know them over the course of the afternoon.

Some helpful logistics: call the day before to confirm your pickup time and location, and you’ll be able to leave belongings (like jackets and bottles of wine) in the van.

I will absolutely book with Marlborough Wine Tours again the next time I’m in New Zealand. Highly recommend others doing the same!

Fun and interesting afternoon!
My wife and I went on the half day tour since the the full day tour was fully booked, but still had a great time sampling 20 wines at 4 vineyards. Gavin our guide was fun, friendly and knowledgeable. Exactly what you want for a wine tasting guide. Some in the group we were in did ask him some difficult questions though... We would thoughly recommend going on this tour if in the area.
