Overview

Treat yourself to a private Wine Gourmet and Scenic Delights, full-day tour of the Marlborough vineyards from Blenheim in New Zealand, for an unforgettable wine and gourmet experience with your Local Chauffeur as your guide. Travel through the breathtaking scenery of the Marlborough wine region and tease your palate with exceptional wines and mouth-watering gourmet fares. This tour focuses on your interests and the itinerary customised according to your needs. You may choose to include in your tour a visit to the Heritage Air Museum, homegrown artisans and craft makers, and prize-winning gardens.

Leaving Blenheim at 10AM, journey through Marlborough on a Tour of Discovery, with special focus on the region’s phenomenal wines, spectacular landscapes and seascapes, and delectable gourmet treats and cuisines. Then there’s the Heritage Air Museum, a must-see for heritage enthusiasts where they can view Peter Jackson’s show-stopping displays of classic aircrafts. For the artisan enthusiast, a visit to a well-known gallery and a meeting with a local artist await.

Other high points of the tour can include visits to private home gourmet kitchens, exquisite gardens, a local brewery or stunning drives around the many bays of the tranquil Marlborough Sounds. If you are game for some adventure, sample the thrills of a jet boat ride.

Sit back in a cozy vehicle and admire the breathtaking landscape through wide windows as you pass through the Wairau Valley wine region or through to Picton for amazing views of the Marlborough Sounds’ shimmering waterways.

Wine-tasting is central to the Marlborough experience. Marlborough, after all, is a major producer of wines for New Zealand. You will be spoilt for choice from the many cellar door hosts and wineries that showcase their celebrated wines throughout the year, catering to visitors’ personal tastes.

In between your wine tasting, expect to enjoy treats of gourmet oils, chutneys, liqueurs, fudges and ice cream/gelatos. Other treats on offer are local cheeses, Manuka honey, black garlic, special peanut butters, and smoked mushrooms, plus a lot more for you to try.

There are also plenty of local produce to buy from roadside stalls beginning November through to February. Luscious strawberries and cherries, apricots, raspberries, nectarines and even asparagus are just some of our homegrown favourites.

Lunch can be arranged in a picturesque winery garden or a chateau atop a hill for splendid views of the Valley. Look forward to some wine tasting, offered with cheese platters at some of our cellar doors, or wine-matching with a glass or bottle of wine paired with your pick on the local menu.

A stop at the Makana Chocolate Boutique is a major highlight of all tours, offering you a chance to indulge in treats you can get nowhere else.

A private chauffeured tour can also be arranged if you are visiting on business or attending a Marlborough event. Your itinerary will be customised by your Local Chauffeur to meet all your needs.

Appointments exclusive to your particular industry can also be set up to satisfy your requirements. Please note that entry fees may be required for some activities. These are payable directly to the host or provider. Whilst all wine tasting fees are included, lunch is to be paid separately on your own.
You will be returned to your accommodation at the end of your tour at around 4.30PM.

Your Local Chauffeur will communicate with you before your tour date regarding confirmation of advance booking for any additional activities.
Experience what Marlborough is all about in this Tour of Discovery. Tours leave Blenheim at 10AM, although tour times are flexible to suit your time frame.
