Join us for a relaxed, friendly wine tour around some of Marlborough’s finest wineries
Your local, friendly guides Helen and Chris have 11 years’ experience growing grapes for Allan Scott Family Winemakers so they know the wines from the roots to the glass.
Your day is not just about tasting a range of great wines. You will also discover the history and methods of viticulture and wine making in the region – the first plantings, early mistakes, pruning, frost protection and harvesting. Don’t feel intimidated by some of the terminology of ‘wine speak’ as we explain the secrets of Maylo, burriques, fermentation, ageing and organics – and taste how they affect the wine in your glass.
Half Day Tour
1.00pm – 5.00pm $95
Your afternoon tour focuses on the scenery, vineyards, smells and tastes of some of Marlborough’s fantastic wines. You’ll visit on average four wineries and get a great introduction to the huge variety of wines and wineries.
Half Day Tour with Lunch
12.00 – 5.00 pm $100
You begin your tour with a lunch at a vineyard restaurant (at your own cost) and then enjoy a range of Marlborough’s great wineries, wines, scenery and stories.
Full Day Tour
10.00am – 5.00pm $125
The full day tour is the equivalent of the marathon so is not for the faint hearted. After a couple of winery visits in the morning you take a break with lunch at a vineyard restaurant (at your own cost). In the afternoon there are more delights for your eyes and palate and we return you tired but content to your accommodation.
