A morning guided tour and afternoon freedom to explore!
Get the best of both worlds. This is an ideal winery tour for those who want a snapshot of the views, tastes, and flavours of the Marlborough wine region.
Your friendly and knowledgeable guide will be with you for the morning and you will visit three of our favourite wineries on superb wine trails through the vineyards, on river stop-banks, and down quiet country roads. Along the way, you’ll be surrounded by spectacular views of the Richmond Range, Wither Hills, Wairau River, and beautiful Marlborough vineyards.
You will learn a little about the history of the area around Blenheim, and the background to growing and producing wine in Marlborough. After visiting three wineries in the morning, your guide will talk you through the map and give you some ideas of where to have lunch, other wineries to visit, and the best places to bike your afternoon of self-guided touring.
Our tours are small and personal with a maximum of eight people per bike tour. Your guide will be with you in the morning time to answer your questions and ensure you have the best possible experience.
