Wineries around Marlborough
I will pick you up from the Picton Information Centre to begin your flexible winery tour.
It will be onto the Yealand Family Wines which is unique in it is the world's first carbo NZero winery. This vineyard is set in the most natural panoramic surrounds with views to the Pacific Ocean and on a clear day to the North Island of New Zealand. They also boast New Zealand's largest solar panel installation. I will take you on a self drive tour through the vineyard after enjoying a wine tasting. We will then step back into the heart of the Marlborough wine area to stop off at various Vineyards of your choice, or perhaps a Beer Tasting at Moa local craft beer brewery . I can always help out here if you are not sure. Once again this is about flexibility on the day and depending on your lunch requirements this can be discussed further. There are many choices e. g. Mussel Pot at Havelock or maybe a Pizza at Moa Brewery or a vineyard. . . . lots of choices.
