    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 !

We had a fantastic day! We visited 5 different vineyards and found the whole tour to be informative, relaxed and thoroughly enjoyable. We learned so much and ended up buying several bottles as the wine was just exceptional! Mike was a great host who really knew his stuff.
