Tour Options



My personalised tours are small, principally geared for 2 to 4 clients. However larger parties can easily be accommodated.

All tours can be altered & new experiences can be added , in order to satisfy client preferences. 


An indepth experience of Marlborough wines centred around two organic boutique wineries.

We spend 1-1½ hours at each winery, culminating in a tasting which includes wines from from their premium/vintage wine list.

These are private visits hosted by the winemaker , or in their absense, a senior member of the staff.

As a natural consequence of the tour , the beauty of the Marlborough landscape is revealed , not always seen by a visitor to the region

Lunch is at client's own cost.Dietary requirements & any special requests are ascertained prior to creating a personalised itinerary for the day.

Price: $335 per person



A mixture of private wine tastings & visits to cellar doors at boutique wineries.

The visits are of a shorter duration & hence 4-6 wineries can be visited (subject to client preferences & interest).

This is an ideal trip to experience a greater selection of the Marlborough wines, but at a less detailed  level than for the "wine enthusiast".


As with all the tours, the day incorporates some spectacular views of the Marlborough landscape not always seen by a visitor

to the region.

A drive to Picton, our local seaside town to the start of a beautiful 1-1½ hour walk with magnificent vistas of the Marlborough Sounds and superb examples of New Zealand native bush.

Either stop off for a light lunch at a cafe in Picton, followed by a visit to Johanneshoff Winery & a private wine tasting in their underground cellar (specialists in gewurztraminer & bubbles)

OR.. drive back to Blenheim for lunch at a winery restaurant, followed by a private wine tasting at a boutique winery (sauvignon blanc & pinot noir).

Note: A surcharge of $30 per person applies for a visit to the Johanneshof cellar if there are only 2 clients

Please note: The walks are geared towards appreciating the local bush & landscape as opposed to a true "hike". Although one of the walks is undulating, average fitness is all that is required.
