Half-Day Marlborough Wine Region Tour from Picton or Blenheim

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    After an early afternoon pickup from your Picton or Blenheim accommodation, travel in a comfortable climate-controlled minivan to the Marlborough wine region.

    Along the way, your guide shares informative commentary about the region as the scenic landscape of vineyards and hills rolls by the window. Stop at four of Marlborough’s top wineries to sample wines such as Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris and Riesling varietals. Stroll through the vineyards, learn more about New Zealand wines, and have the option to purchase lunch at one of the wineries.

    Your tour ends with hotel drop-off in the early evening.

    It was very well organised and Phil was a friendly and knowledgeable host, who even told a few gags. 🙂 We were shown a great assortment of wineries and wines and learned a few things too.

    Whilst some tour companies will operate of boxing days, many wineries will not, I spoke with Sounds Connections and they have arranged some wineries to open for the Celebrity Solice on boxing day.
