Half Day Guided Biking Wine Tour

Bike Wine Tours

Daily 9.30am - 1pm, bookings required

Tour Overview

This is an ideal winery tour for those who want a snap shot of the views, tastes and flavours of the Marlborough wine region. No need for maps as your friendly and knowledgeable guide will take you from winery to winery on superb wine trails through the vineyards, on river stop-banks and down quiet country roads. Along the way you'll be inundated with spectacular views of the Richmond Range, Wither Hills, Wairau River and beautiful Marlborough vineyards.

You will learn a little of the history of the area around Blenheim, and the background to growing and producing wine in Marlborough. The highlight is a visit to three of our favourite wineries to taste some of the best wines of the region, including Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and a range of aromatics. Our tours are small and personal with a maximum of eight people per bike tour. Your guide will be with you the whole time to answer your questions and ensure you have the best possible experience.

You do not need to be an experienced cyclist to enjoy this bike tour. The pace is leisurely and the terrain is gentle, ensuring easy riding no matter what your skill level. 

Don't worry about the weather - if it rains we just switch you to a driving wine tour so you still get to have a great day out.
