We Offer Unique Wine Tours in New Zealand Customised to Your Style or Budget

When you want to experience the best wine tours in New Zealand, look no further than Marlborough Wine Tours. We focus on customising your visit to match your style and budget.

The critical component to wine tasting in NZ is the amount of fun you’ll have exploring cellar doors and discovering new wines. Follow these simple recommendations to get the most out of wine tasting in New Zealand:

  • Savour the time you spend at a cellar door. Start early before the afternoon rush. You may want to split a tasting with a companion to lessen palette fatigue. Relish the individual wines that you share.
  • Ask questions. Your guide holds a plethora of information about the land, climate, and local wines. The suggestions your guide offers may lead you to a particular wine that may become your favourite. Be sure to bring along a box to hold the bottles you purchase. There are few adventures as appropriate as New Zealand wine tours to take home souvenirs that you’ll enjoy in the months ahead.

About the Team at Marlborough Wine Tours

What sets our team of guides apart is our commitment to making your tour the most enjoyable possible. We will customise your wine tour in NZ. Read below to understand how we are unique:

  • What is your favourite type of cellar door? Is it the small family-owned winery or a glamorous estate? Is it a boutique experience or a combination of different types? We will tailor your excursion to the cellar doors that suit your style. We can keep a fast clip of 45 minutes per cellar door, or we can accommodate extended stays at a few stops. It is your choice.
  • Some of our guides are locals with an excellent grasp of the history of the area. Others are transplants that hold a passion for the area. The advantage for New Zealand wine tourism is that our wine-growing region sits in some of the most spectacularly beautiful sections of the country. The views from our coach are almost as enjoyable as the tastings themselves.
  • We understand that some tours will be a fun-loving experience amongst a group from a cruise ship or an excursion with your six best friends. Alternatively, if you want to delve deep into the winemaking process, we’ll guide you to a boutique winery to learn the process. You’ll gain insights into the weather and soil. Then you will blend your own Pinot Noir or Sauvignon Blanc. Our commitment is that you’ll have the experience of a lifetime.
