Meet your guide at the Picton i-Site after your cruise ship docks.  Then board a luxury minibus and journey through the scenic Marlborough wine region while your guide points out ecological and historical places of interest; this small-group tour is limited to 12 people to ensure a more intimate atmosphere.
You will visit four or five cellar doors around the Marlborough vineyards. The cellar door hosts will introduce their products and discuss their provenance and variety. Taste their award winning wines and learn how Marlborough's sauvignon blanc has reached the pinnacle of sophistication, then take a stroll through a vineyard and learn how climate, soil, and skill combine to make these incredible wines. Marlborough is not all about Sauvignon Blanc - we have stunning Rieslings, crisp and fruity Pinot Gris, oaked and unoaked Chardonnay and our renown Pinot Noir.
A stop will be made for lunch (own expense), featuring delicacies such as mussels, salmon, venison or beef when available. Alternatively, a light meal of gourmet local cheeses to pair with your wine might suffice.
On the way back to the port, we stop at a notable chocolate factory for a nibble of hand-made gourmet chocolates. You will return to the Picton wharf at least 90 minutes before your cruise ship departs.
