Marlborough, New Zealand

I recently had the joy of traveling to Marlborough, New Zealand.  While we were there we hired a chauffeur named Pamela March, founder of Your Local Chauffeur, to take us around.  We manged to get to 9 wineries in one day, each one as good as the last.

If you don’t know already, Marlborough is famous for its Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir wine varietals.

We stayed at the Marlborough Vintners Hotel.  It was spacious and in a perfect location – within walking distance of many wineries and right in the valley.  It was just a ten minute drive to nearby Blenheim which had many cafes and restaurants.

Some of the wineries we went to include:

Hunter’s Wines

No. 1 (known for their champagne)

Allan Scot Family Winemakers

Framingham Wine Company

Brancott Estate

Saint Clair

Nautilus

Whither Hills

TerraVin Winery (beautiful lunch spot)

Lawson’s Dry Hills
