Marlborough Deluxe Wine Tour By Car

Driving Wine Tours

Runs Daily - 9.30am to 3.30pm

Tour Overview

You are our guest, not a number on the back seat of a mini bus. On our private driving tour we give you a unique experience, tailored to suit you, not a set standard outing with set standard stops. If you love Riesling, we know just the right spot for you, and if you love Sauvignon Blanc, you'll love it even more when you taste it with us, whether it's an iconic label you know well, or a limited release single vineyard Sauvignon from the smallest boutique winery. We'll take you to a private tasting or a winery tour, where you'll learn things you didn't know you didn't know. Then, just as your palate is tiring, we'll whip you off for a vineyard lunch to refresh it for the afternoon. 

Explore Marlborough's driving wine tours are built around our clients' wishes. We have a planned itinerary for the day, but once we pick you up from your accommodation we will talk to you about the types of wines you like or particular Marlborough wineries you would like to visit.

Our guides all have connections to the industry, having worked for wineries, owned vineyards or made their own wine. This ensures you get a really informative day, where you learn about the history of the valley and the wine region, the reasons that Marlborough grows world renown Sauvignon Blanc, and an understanding of the process of growing grapes and making wine.
