What you can expect

Embark on a tour of the world-famous Marlborough Region and learn the detailed process used to create the wines that come from this fertile corner of New Zealand. Plenty of tastings are included, and you can even opt for a wine-blending class that lets you dive even deeper into winemaking.

Begin your day with convenient pick-up from your hotel and a scenic drive through the sprawling green landscape that defines Marlborough. Arrive at the first of 6 or 7 wineries on your itinerary and pass through the doors of its cellar, being greeted by the rich aroma of wine maturing in oak barrels. A friendly winemaker shows you the process of creating the perfect vino, from grape to bottle. Enjoy tastings of bright sauvignon blancs and delectable pinot noir while learning to use your nose and your tongue to identify their flavour notes.

Opt for the lunch-and-class offer and enjoy a meal in a vineyard restaurant and wine-blending class, then continue your journey through this distinctively green and bountiful landscape, making stops at various facilities and meeting their knowledgeable staff. Make a final stop at a local chocolate factory for tastings of its sweet, silky handmade treats before making the trip back to your hotel.
