Guests will be taken to a private winery for a vineyard talk and a behind the scenes tour and explanation of the winemaking process. This is very special and unique. Guests are offered tastings of all the different wines made including Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and world famous Sauvignon Blanc.

We will also show guests how to appreciate wine, how to hold the wine glass and enjoy the smell of the wine, so they look like professionals.

After a private tasting and tour guests will be driven around Marlborough and enjoy the wonderful wine tasting rooms, they will have the opportunity to purchase lunch at one of the world class restaurants. (lunch cost is not included)
The tour often finishes with a stop at a local brewery and the opportunity to taste some beer or cider.

The tour takes 6 hours and includes 4-5 wineries. We can also visit an additional brewery on occasions if requested.

After the tour guests will be dropped back to their accommodation. (Free pick up within 15km of Blenheim, small transfer charge for remote pickups)

The tours are run by a team of different Winemakers and wine trained specialists. The wine tour business is called Hop n Grape Tours Marlborough.

We thoroughly enjoyed our wine tour today. We particularly appreciated the quality of the wineries selected, getting access to wineries not open to the public, the variety of presenters, the detour to the chocolate factory, the fantastic lunch, our host, our company, and, of course, the exceptional Marlborough wines.

Great day out, good value and Darlene was a knowledgeable, charming tour guide. We visited a good selection of wineries. Darlene customised it according to our wine preferences and was able to provide supplementary knowledge at each venue. The highlights were Mount Riley, No1 Family Estate and lunch at Wairau River. The tour included Makana Confectionery where the Macadamia Butter Toffee crunch was to die for!

This is an absolutely superb tour. Our guide, Darlene, was extremely knowledgeable about wine and specifically Marlborough wine, and shared her knowledge and experience in an unassuming and thoughtful way. Having done many MANY wine tasting tours, we learnt a huge amount and tasted a wide variety of wines (26 we think!). A wonderful day out.
