You can have a guided wine tasting at their cellar tasting doors, many offer local gourmet delights to enjoy in beautiful surroundings such as Cloudy Bay's raw bar. Many offer refreshing platters. If you would like to dine outdoors let us know and we will book you into one of Marlborough's most popular restaurants, Rock Ferry. (meals at own cost)

As you tour the wine province you will see its many vineyards. Your guide will tell you about the history of the wine region and some of the characters who have been its pioneers.
