Marlborough Vineyards

You can sample excellent wines and at many of the wineries indulge in first class cuisine, this is after all the reason for coming to Marlborough.

You can choose a tour see below, or explore yourself.

The best place to start is Wine Marlborough and follow their map, which you can download. On the back are listed the wineries, with address and contact details. If you plan on eating it is definitely recommended to make a reservation.

My favorites for vineyard dining are :

Allan Scott

Brancott Estate

Giesen Wines

Hans Herzog Estate

Hunters Wines

Rock Ferry Wines

Saint Clare Vineyard Kitchen

Wairau River Wines

Wither Hills Winery

 

Wine Tours

Fine Tours New Zealand

Marlborough Wine Tours

Sounds Connection

Waterways and Wine
This one is good if you only have one day and want to combine a morning boat trip on the sounds and an afternoon wine tour with one operator taking care of everthing.
Cruise the Marlborough Sounds, enjoy brunch at the luxury Bay of Many Coves resort, then visit the best of Marlborough’s world-famous wineries.

Next, on the corner with Wellington Street is Oxley’s Bar and Kitchen.

Along Wellington Street there is Seumus’s Irish Bar and then Escape to Picton.

A little way up High Street is Gusto’s, (excellent for breakfasts), and one block further up is Plaza India Bistro and Tandoor.

a good local baker is Picton Village Bakkerij
