Stop At: Your Local Chauffeur

On this half-day tour from Blenheim you will have time to enjoy wine tasting and delicious gourmet treats. You also have the option of staying on for the full day if you choose. The seat is yours for just a little extra of course. There will be time to enjoy a light snack or wine/tea/coffee/other at one of the great local winery cafes or restaurants. Travel through the picturesque Wairau Valley and learn a little about Marlborough before the vines became one of the draw cards that put the Marlborough wine region on the global map. It can be very interesting to hear from the passionate and experienced cellar door staff about the individual growth of the family owned vineyards and the booming wine industry. Best of all you are coming to taste for yourself the award winning sensational wines, and perhaps the gourmet cuisine and treats. Enjoy tastings of the local gourmet oils, liqueurs, cheeses, special peanut butters, garlic noir and of course Makana Chocolate Boutique Confections is a must stop! Between December and February, have a chance to taste roadside produce including strawberries, raspberries, cherries, apricots, nectarines and more.
