Marlborough Wine Tours
Marlborough Wine Tours from Blenheim and Picton
Over 500 vineyards and 45 cellar doors await you on your Wine Tours from Picton, around Blenheim and the Marlborough Valleys. Come and explore the huge range of aroma, texture and flavour within their International award winning wines . Tours will be led by our knowledgeable local guides and barrel room tours or discussions and tastings with the winemakers themselves can be arranged. Then savour the premium local fare in a vineyard restaurant.
We are committed to providing a truly special day out.
All our wine tours include pick up and drop off at your accommodation. We will visit a carefully selected range of cellar doors ( 4 – 5 on the Half Day tour and 6 – 7 on the Full Day tour, as time allows ). We are happy to visit cellar doors of your choice but some may charge small additional tasting fees. Your Tour Guide will take you to a vineyard to demonstrate the vine growth patterns and to explain the production pathway of Grapes to Wine. A stop will be made at a winery restaurant for lunch (optional, at own cost). Be prepared for a fun, informative day in the vineyards !

If you look, or could get away with looking, under 20, please bring photo ID. Consider it a compliment. The wineries are very strict !
We also have some Craft Breweries in Marlborough – why not combine a wine tour with a visit to some of our breweries. Let the Brewmaster guide you through his craft beer production – smell the hops and taste his beers. Or relax in a garden to savour the brews produced down the road at our craft brewery in the vineyards !
