    What to Expect
    Begin with pickup at your centrally-located accommodations in Blenheim, where you’ll meet a local guide and travel to first winery of the day. Make the most of your time in the car by learning the basics of the Marlborough wine region’s history, climate, and wines.
    This small-group tour is designed for flexibility, so the itinerary varies: visit either four or five vineyards, and taste your way through the wines they produce. If there’s a kind of wine you prefer, please feel free to make requests while booking, so the local wine experts can work to choose the best wineries for your group.
    Throughout the tour, the guide will share stories and facts about Marlborough wines, making your tastings as informed and interesting as possible. This 4-hour wine tasting tour concludes with return transfer to your Blenheim accommodations, and drop-off at the Blenheim ferry is also available.
