Fall in love with wines and explore new varietals that are there for you to taste. 

Admire from high vantage points the spectacular views of the rolling hill ranges and contrasting vineyards, market gardens and farms. Along the way you can stop for seasonal produce (between December and February) of juicy strawberries, cherries, apricots, nectarines. For every day of the year, there's delicious gourmet treats of local cheeses, oils, liqueurs, manuka honey, peanut butter, black garlic and not to forget a very special stop at Makana Chocolate Boutique Confections for divine chocolate treats.

Wine is the famous drawcard in the Marlborough region, and Marlborough is the largest producer of wine for New Zealand. and renowned for specializing in Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. Some local wineries are also specialists in additional wines you will be able
to taste such as Gewurztraminer, Riesling, Viognier, Gruener-veltliner, Albarino are just some of the different wines that can grow well in this area.

Relax in a picturesque winery garden café or at a chateau on the hill with magnificent views of the valley overlooking the vineyards. Enjoy a cheese, meat and seafood platter or tapas. As you near the end of the day, the beautiful views of the hills create a perfect ambiance for you to relax before getting ready for dinner with your favorite wine of the day.

Your chauffeur/guide looks forward to meeting you and creating a memorable and exciting day for you.
