About Us

I have lived in Marlborough for 10 years and am passionate about the Marlborough region and its world class wine. Five years ago I set up Explore Marlborough because one of the real joys of travel is meeting local people and sampling local wine and food, while also exploring the landscapes. 

Explore Marlborough's wine tours have been designed to get you off the beaten track, on roads and rows less travelled. Our tours are full of treasured moments, like a cycle group coming across Cyldesdale horses in a biodynamic vineyard, or meeting a wine maker sampling grapes in a quiet block of Sauvignon Blanc. Our tours are small and personal so you get to know your guide for the day and they get to know you. By the time they drop you back at your accommodation in Picton or Blenheim, you'll have shared lifelong memories.

I hope you enjoy Exploring Marlborough. We look forward to sharing it with you.
