Full description
The day is all about you. Your guide will meet you at your hotel at an agreed time (usually around 10:00). Your day starts with a short drive to a local vineyard to get a taste for the bouquet and texture of the styles of wines you will enjoy throughout the day. Learn about local viticulture and the unique combination of soil and climate (the Terroir), and wine maker's art, which create the unique aromas and textures of these award winning wines. An air-conditioned minibus will then transport you to a winery where you'll visit the barrel room and soak in the atmosphere of wine maturing in French oak barrels. Their expert staff will then guide you through the process of blending samples of Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Noir wines, to produce your own unique vintage to perfectly match your personal idea of the ideal wine. Those proportions will never be matched again! You'll move on to lunch at a carefully selected vineyard restaurant, where you can indulge in local gourmet seafood – oysters, green-lipped mussels or salmon – or a selection of other local fare. The food is outstanding, the views unsurpassed and the wine out of this world. You'll then move on to taste the wide variety of wines available at the cellar doors of Marlborough. You dictate the pace, as your tour guide will be happy to visit those wineries which have come to your notice if you have enjoyed their wines before. The bright Sauvignon Blancs, delectable Pinot Noir and tropical Aromatics have won awards throughout the world and you'll visit a range of the large branded vineyards and the smaller boutique, family-run wineries. The subtle variations in aroma and texture will amaze you. There is a limit to every wine palate, and you will visit between 5 and 6 wineries. You will then be guided safely back to your accommodation, but the chocolate factory along the way may tempt you with their handmade gourmet masterpieces; a wonderful way to end this truly exceptional day in Marlborough.
