Private Marlborough Winery Tour

Let our winemaker tailor a Marlborough wine tour especially for you or your group’s needs… or let us surprise you with something special! You decide the start and finish time of the tour. Visit your favourite wineries without having to compromise with others in the group.

You can get behind the scenes for a private tasting, or take a drive through the Awatere Valley and soak up Marlborough’s stunning scenery. We can focus on boutique, or organic wineries, breweries, combine fine wine and food… anything is possible with a private tour.

This option is recommended for larger groups or families with children under the age of 12. We can visit wineries more suited to young families to keep everyone happy.

If you are arriving on a cruise ship into Picton we can arrange a tour that works around your ship’s schedule.
