  • 1 minutes


Bring out your inner wine connoisseur and be treated like royalty OMG, I can’t believe I just said that!



You know what you like. World class wine with superbly presented, mouth watering food platters. For wine connoisseurs or individuals embarking on the vintner experience Marlborough will tantalise the senses. Become a cork master and cycle from door to door.  A combination of a cool yet high sunshine climate, low rainfall and free-draining, moderately fertile soil produces uniquely vivid wines. The area is dominated by aromatic pure fruity Sauvignon blanc. Then a contender for the top spot is the mid-weight, fine tannins of a good Pinot Noir. Don`t forget about the aromatics, Riesling, Pinot gris and Gewürztraminer with their purity and chirpy spirit. And there is Chardonnay with excellent intensity and complexity with a hint of citrus. Bring out your inner wine connoisseur and enjoy the good life.

  1. The maker of corked Artisan wines, Hans Herzog winery. Switzerland born family turned an apple orchard into a success offering guests to experience Herzog wines, the way there are intended: shared among friends, with fine food, in the relaxing surroundings of a roaring fire or sunny veranda.
  1. Translation of Mahi and their motto say it all: “Our work, our craft. To make wines in as natural a way as possible from great vineyards is a constant enjoyment, and then to see these wines through to the bottle, watch them slowly evolve, and to enjoy them at the table with friends is incredibly satisfying.”
  1. Tohu wines World first Māori-owned winery where knowledge and passion passed down to generations so unique can be created by following true values of rangatiratanga (excellence), kaitiakitanga (guardianship) and manaakitanga (kindness).

    Located in Upper Moutere, Nelson, the vineyard name Whenua Matua translates to ‘significant land’. True to its name, this land holds a special place in our hearts. The Whenua Matua vineyard land in the Moutere Hills has special significance to iwi in the region. It is part of tenths reserve lands and can never be sold.
  1. A small vineyard and winery of Te Whare RA is pushing for organic and biodynamic practices by picking and sorting all fruit by hand. The wines are made with minimal intervention in a small winery which has been specifically set up for small batch winemaking. Small in size but great in taste indeed.
