Wineries and Wine Tours

As New Zealand's largest grape growing and wine making region, Marlborough has around 65 wineries, with 290 grape growers and some 4,054 hectares in grape production. Most of the wineries provide wine tasting sessions and many have a cafe or restaurant on site.

Sauvignon Blanc is Marlborough's most popularly produced wine, but you can also find Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Cabernet Sauvignon produced here.

Wine trail maps make it easy to find your way around the vineyards, or you can join a Marlbough wine tour.
