Cruise ship wine and Sounds tour with Marlborough Jade
What an amazing wine tour for a party of Cruise ship passengers off the Voyager of the Seas. 12 passengers from Macedonia filled the newly branded Marlborough Jade Tours bus and they were enthralled by the stunning views of Marlborough and the Sounds. The cherries were a big hit but the wine was too sweet – a wine maker in their midst suggested alcohol levels of 26% tasted better. We call that fortified wine ! We travelled through the Waihopi valley before the dreadful fire started and photographed the beautiful Wairau valley from the Highfield tower. Then away from the vineyards into the Havelock valley and across to the Queen Charlotte Sound and the climactic views of their beautiful ship, the Voyager of the Seas. A happy day for everyone.
