Overview
A visit to New Zealand's premier wine region is incomplete without stopping by a winery for a tasting. This half-day Marlborough tour leaves the driving to a guide who selects four different wineries you’ll visit. Limited to 11 people, this small-group tour maintains an intimate atmosphere. Hotel pickup and drop-off is included from Picton or Blenheim.
