Destinations

If you are seeking a real taste of New Zealand and you have been to the popular destinations such a Queenstown, Rotorua and Waiheke then Marlborough should be your next stop.

Marlborough already has an exceptional reputation for great winemaking, beautiful scenery especially the Marlborough Sounds and the freshest produce including seafood, so it is the perfect venue to have a concentrated focus on your tastebuds.

When flying into Blenheim on a clear day (and the region has more clear days than anywhere else in the whole of New Zealand) you will be able to see from the mountains to Cook Strait. I promise that your first sight of Marlborough will leave you in awe and wanting to see and experience more.

The minute you arrive you know that life here is all about quality food and award winning wines so you simply have to indulge.

This region is the world’s “bulls eye” for Sauvignon Blanc so that is the perfect tipple to kick off your first (of many) wine tastings. Beautiful and welcoming vineyard tasting rooms overlook neat rows of vines, each of these working their hardest to grow world class grapes.

Fine food and wine experiences include tastings at the various and easily reached vineyards or for something a bit more go all out and do a “meet the chef” experience as part of a group meal.

Another really cool way to enjoy even more of the local wine and cuisine scene is to hop on a boat and cruise the Marlborough Sounds. Whilst the boat glides along you can unwind and taste the freshest local fresh salmon and steamed mussels, and of course some more of that delicious local wine.

If you want to take a step back into history and get a feel of Peter Jackson’s creativity, make sure head out to the Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre which is one of the world’s largest private collections of great war aircraft and artefacts. This is also the home of the Classic Fighters Air Show which is usually held around Easter each year.

Whether you are travelling with a small group of 10 or a large group of 200 people, there are plenty of accommodation options to cater for all.

For the ultimate authentic wine country experience in a moderate sized hotel you can stay right in Sauvignon Blanc central, where I’m sure when you wake up you can hear the grapes growing. It’s fun to hop on a bike and ride from one vineyard to another.

Or if you are travelling with a large group and wish to stay in central Blenheim then there are two excellent 4 and 5 star hotels to choose from.

Slightly further away is Picton where you can stay along the marina and wake up to the gentle sound of the water and the sight of the fishermen bringing in today’s freshly caught seafood. If you want to really treat yourself and take it up a notch, there is a boutique resort set in a native bush along the edge of the Queen Charlotte Sound where you will discover a totally unexpected luxury. This is the ultimate experience to leave you feeling rejuvenated and replenished.

I promise you will have a great time in Marlborough. Their wines are world-famous, their waterways are a national treasures, and from the mountains to the sea, your time in Marlborough will be amazing. GO and see for yourself.
