Overview

Leaving Picton, journey through Marlborough on a Private Wine Gourmet and Scenic Delights Tour from Picton, 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 comfortable vehicle, admiring the spectacular scenery through wide windows as you journey through the Wairau Valley wine region or through Picton for amazing views of Marlborough Sounds’ shimmering waterways. Wine-tasting is at the heart of the Marlborough experience, the region being the largest producer of wine 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 at your own cost.
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. Embark on a tour of discovery and experience what Marlborough is all about. Tours leave Blenheim and Picton, and times are flexible to accommodate your schedule.
