Wine Tasting as a Single adult with a child

Help! I will be doing a mother and daughter trip to New Zealand and I want to do wine tastings. We will have a car rental but I'm a little concerned about drinking and driving. I'm not planning on getting sloshed but I would like to participate while playing it safe. Any suggestions on driving a car/riding a bike/ hiring a tour with a child? Are there family friendly wineries? How long does it take to get from one winery to another? Are the roads safe for children to ride bikes on? What is there to do for a 9 year old while I taste wines? Can she run through the vineyards? Explore the grounds?

Take an organised tour and ask for child friendly vineyards to visit.

Much of the biking in Marlborough shares the main road with buses, trucks, campervans etc - I personally wouldn't cycle them and I wouldn't take a 9 year old biking there.

Another option is have your child looked after by a babysitter for a day (your accommodation can book this for you) and you enjoy a vineyard tour or hire a bike and go solo.
