Phil our host was amazing. His professional, yet friendly manner combined with his knowledge made the day very memorable for our group of 8. The choice of wineries and the brewery was spot on. Top marks to this company for providing an excellent experience.

A trip to remember
Mar 2021 • Couples
Phil our driver and tour guide is a very hospitable and knowledgeable guy on all matters about the wines and the Malborough region. Had some great company in our small tour group of four. Wine selections and tasting was great and after half way through the wine tasting the sumptuous lunch at Saint Claire Vineyard was definitely the highlight of the trip. Beautiful succulent roast lamb lunch after all that wine intake.
Definitely a must excursion to do in the New Zealand Malborough region and to have an awesome time and sharing experiences with new found friends.

Wine tour
Feb 2021 • Couples
It was fab to be picked up and dropped back to our Air BnB. Phil was lovely and very knowledgable about the grapes and the area. There were 10 of us and we all got chatting which was nice. It was a great experience and we had a good time. I realise you can’t please
all the people all of the time and we all have different likes and dislikes. I want to be honest in my review. Some Cellar Doors were better than others. Lawsons was the first and I felt was the best one. The lady at Lawsons was just lovely. She provided us with a print out of what wines we tried so we could mark which ones we liked. None of the other places gave us this. We went back the next day and bought some wine from Lawsons before we headed home.
I had never been on a wine tour before. It was a hot day and by the last two tastings I was over sitting out in the sun and just wanted to have a tasting inside an air conditioned room. I felt Whitehaven put in the least effort and we were just put into the hot outside area, with not enough seating and not asked if we wanted to be inside. The inside just seemed like a shop not a wine tasting place. Lunch at St Clair was delicious and I loved the fact that at St Clair you could go outside and walk amongst the vines.
Hunters was good as we finally got to taste some bubbles, although once again it was sat outside.
For improvements, for me, I expect to be sat inside with all the group around a round table so we can talk to each other about the wine with the wine expert discussing the wine with us. At FROM he poured the wine then walked away while we tasted it each time. I didn’t like being sat outside on beer garden tables or on couches at Jackson’s winery. I felt it should have been a bit more special for us. Maybe the cellar doors could provide some crackers and blue cheese if they say it goes well with that particular wine. Hunters gave us some delicious macadamia nuts from the chocolate shop, which then made us want to go the to shop and buy stuff. Which we did do. Maybe Marlborough Wine Tour you could provide pads and pens so people can write down their favourite wines as it’s hard to remember which ones are liked. All these small touches make it more enjoyable and memorable. I wouldn’t go again but it was well organised by Marlborough Wine Tours and I would recommend them.

Hi Thanks for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review - although most of your critique is outside of our control. We will note that all the tastings outside on a hot day was a bit much, although we would be hard pressed to find a AC unit in the cellar doors due to the indoor/outdoor nature of the situation. We no longer provide pen/pads as we find almost all the cellar doors do provide tasting notes to take away ( not sure why you didn't get them on the day your toured). We also encourage people to photograph the tasting notes or bottle labels and load them into ViVino for future reference - this also saves unnecessary consumption which usually ends up in the rubbish. Great to hear that you had a great day with Phil and that the tour was well organised. Thanks Jess

Absolutely Lovely!!
Feb 2021 • Couples
Corey and I had the most wonderful time on our wine tour this weekend with Nic who was our lovely host!

Sydney:
I love wine but had never done a wine tour before and could not have asked for a better first experience or guide. Nic was so kind and knowledgeable and took us to six great family run wineries throughout the area. It was so cool learning about all of their different stories and getting to know Nic and the other great couple on the tour. Could not have asked for a more personable experience! The wines were also amazing! Can’t wait to pick up a few bottles on our return from our South Island road trip :)

Corey:
For someone who’s not a big wine drinker at all, the tour was a very fun day out. Our guide Nic was fabulous and made the day very enjoyable! We actually came across another tour group at one of the wineries and they were a bit quiet, even the tour guide. Nic made our experience wonderful and full of lots of laughs and stories! All the wineries were very lovely and we’d definitely do it again.
