Full-Day Marlborough Wine Tour Including Wine Tasting

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Wonderfully suited for those with little knowledge about wine, but are keen to learn more, this 6-hour tour will be the perfect day out for you. This tour starts with a pick up from your hotel in Picton, Blenheim, or Havelock between 9:30am-10am.

    During the day your tour guide will take you for a  ‘vineyard walk and talk’ and answer any questions you have. This tour is presented in a relaxed and informative manner where selective tasting is the order of the day.

    The tour includes a stop for lunch (cost not included) with several lunch options available. Throughout the day you will visit 5-6 cellar doors and taste some superb Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Riesling and Pinot Noir as well as some lesser known varieties from the area and the day concludes at the Boutique Chocolate Factory – a perfect ending to a perfect day!

    You need to ask the actual tour operator which is Marlbirough Wine Country Tours. I'm just a fellow traveler and reviewer.

    HI yes you can purchase wine for personal export at all the wineries, using a paper form or the App. You purchase the wine at the winery cost and check the app for the price of shipping and tax for your location.
