Explore the fine wines and delectable produce of the Waipara, Kaikoura and Marlborough Regions on this private 3 day gourmet tour. Enjoy a stunning lunch at Rock Ferry Winery (our personal favourite), wine tastings at Cloudy Bay, Black Estate, Fromm and More + Sample Kaikoura’s famous crayfish. The best part if that you have a private driver/tour guide, so you can indulge to your heart’s content while being chauffeured in style!
Your tour begins! Today you will head north from Christchurch towards the wine growing region of Waipara. Your first stop along the way will be for tastings at the award winning Pegasus Bay Winery and stunning Black Estate Winery to sample their exquisite and extensive range of beautiful wines. Following this you will continue on the road up the Pacific Coast to Kaikoura where you can visit a seal colony. You will continue on the road North to Blenheim after lunch where you will spend the next two nights at the wonderful Chateau Marlborough.
Today you will explore New Zealand’s premier wine region with your private tour guide. Visit 4 to 5 different wineries in the Marlborough wine region to taste Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Riesling and Pinot Noir as well as some lesser known varieties from the area. At the delightful Rock Ferry Winery you will enjoy an exquisite lunch and a tasting of their fine organic wines. You’ll hang from the egg chairs swinging in the gargantuan gum trees at Cloudy Bay and sample some more wines from Vines Village and other wineries of your choosing (options will be presented to you). You will be dropped back at your hotel late afternoon. You will enjoy a scrumptious dinner tonight at Quench Restaurant and Bar at Chateau Marlborough.
Today you will head South back to Christchurch along the Pacific Coast. You will enjoy a casual but delicious lunch at the Kaikoura Seafood BBQ Kiosk at the seaside. We also recommend visiting our number one Kaikoura look out spot where you will experience the stunning beauty of the mountains meeting the Pacific Ocean before returning to Christchurch in the evening.
