    Stop: 5 hours - Admission included
    Tour the famous Marlborough vineyards, tasting the wines and learning some of the secrets of why the wines win awards throughout the world. A stop is made for lunch (own cost) at a vineyard restaurant. Your expert local guide will collect you from your Blenheim accommodation ($40 surcharge for collection and return to Picton). Travel on board our luxury minibus through the scenic Marlborough wine region while your wine guide discusses the wines and vineyards; this small-group tour is limited to 10 people to ensure a more intimate atmosphere. You will visit up to five cellar doors on a flexible schedule around the Marlborough vineyards - we try to match our wines to your particular tastes. Learn how Marlborough's sauvignon blanc has reached the pinnacle of sophistication, then take a stroll through a vineyard and learn how climate, soil, and skill combine to make an award-winning wine. Marlborough is not all about Sauvignon Blanc - we have stunning Rieslings, crisp and fruity Pinot Gris, oaked and unoaked Chardonnay and our renown Pinot Noir. A stop will be made for lunch (own expense), featuring delicacies such as mussels, salmon, venison or beef when available. Alternatively, a light meal of gourmet local cheeses to pair with your wine might suffice. On the way home, we stop at a local chocolate factory for a nibble of hand-made gourmet chocolates. We try to make this a truly memorable day !

What a great tour with Sue. She was friendly,engaging and really knowledgeable. We shared the tour with four others who were doing the full day tour and that worked well as we were dropped back to our motel while the others had a winery lunch. A bonus was a stop at the chocolate factory so not only did we buy some great wine but delicious chocolates ad well. We appreciated Jade Tours responsiveness and flexibility when we booked very much only the day prior. Jade are prepared to customize tours to suit your needs and not use a one size fits all approach

We had an amazing day out with Mike from Jade Tours. He was extremely knowledgeable about the Marlborough region and took us to some amazing boutique wineries where we got to try some very different kinds of wines.

We also got taken to a great place for lunch which was a lovely addition.

Mike was very flexible with our itinerary, checking what kinds of wine we liked and planning our day accordingly. Overall this made for a very personalised and enjoyable experience.

I am a repeat customer of Jade Tours and can’t recommend them enough, I will definitely be coming back again! Thank you!

A fantastic tour with Mike, who is very knowledgeable about the wineries and the wines that are special to the different vineyards in the region. We liked that he took time to find out the variety of wines we enjoyed and asked it there were any wineries we would particularly like to visit or could he make some suggestions.
Would definitely recommend Mike and Jade tours to anyone who is looking to do a wine tour of the Marlborough region. Hope that we will return sometime to do another tour with him of some more of the local vineyards. Great value and thank you Mike for a great day.

It was a pleasure to host you both on your tour through some of the spectacular wineries in our Marlborough region. We are really spoilt for choice and I look forward to meeting you again if you make it back our way again. Many thanks for your special review. (That dinner in the barrel room raised a LOT of money for the charity !)

Our amazing guide, Mike was extremely knowledgeable about the Marlborough wine region but still asked for input into our flexible itinerary to accommodate all wine preferences and tastes. We visited a range of top quality wineries with informative and friendly cellar door hosts. Lunch at Allan Scott Winery offered a range of quality dishes (including gluten free and vegetarian) in a beautiful setting. A great day enjoyed by all - even the husbands who “don’t really drink wine!”

Had a great day with Sue. It was just the 2 of us on the tour but she pulled out all the stops and made us feel extremely welcome. We covered 5 vineyards and had a great lunch. She had an excellent relationship with all the staff at the places we visited so we were treated very well. We liked that we went to both very familiar vineyards and others that we didn't know at all and had a very wide range of tastings.

We were very impressed with Mike's knowledge of not just the wine but also the heritage behind the scenes. We didn't realise just how mighty the Blenheim/Marlborough wine region is and how well they do internationally. We highly recommend Jade Tours for a relaxed learning and enjoyable experience. Next time we will jump on the full day tour.

We did the half day tour Blenheim tour and it was really good. Mike was really easy going and full of knowledge about the region but also with wines around the world. He was really flexible and accomodating and ensured we had a great experience. It was a fun and memorable day. We would recommend Jade Tours to everyone.

Sue found us quiet relaxed boutique cellar doors to visit, the experience was very friendly and it was great to learn the history and stories of some of the vineyards. She was a wealth of information and went out of her way to make it a great experience. It was a small group of just us and one other couple.

WOW!! We had the absolute best day with Mike. Email communication prior was great and we arrived to be collected from the airport as arranged. Mike built instant rapport with us and we set off on our tour. Mikes knowledge of the area, the wines and the history kept us fully engaged and entertained. His choice of tastings for us was spot on. We asked him to pick the lunch spot (this is an additional cost) and again WOW - absolutely amazing lunch at Wither Hills. Mike appears well known and respected by the staff at the cellar doors and this made us feel relaxed,and welcomed. We were safely returned to our hotel after a quick tour of downtown with Blenheim where Mine gave us tips for brunch etc. Thankyou so much for an incredible day Mike - we will be back and we highly highly recommend you :-)

The great benefit of visiting in the winter was having Mike and his local knowledge all to ourselves on what turned out to be a private tour. His insight into the wineries and the region was amazing, often going into greater detail on the local history than the attendants taking us through the tastings. The drive was smooth and comfortable and Mike helped us to organise the wine delivery home to Australia. Definitely recommend Jade tours!

Always a pleasure to take folk round our vineyards and to teach them something of our wine making and the region. I'm glad you managed to find some nice wines to send home. Thank you for your very positive review.
