The Marlborough region is located at the tip of the South Island. A unitary authority, it is both a region and a district. Its landscape is mountainous with peaks at Kaikoura Ranges and in between are long straight valleys and here is where you'll find the town of Blenheim. Due to its fertile soil and year round sunshine, the Marlborough region is the perfect area for wine making.
It is the largest wine making region in New Zealand, over 9000 hectares of vineyards exist here with some 70 wineries producing award winning Sauvignon Blanc. When you tour New Zealand with us, you'll get the opportunity to experience Georges Michel Wine Estate. Enjoy time here tasting their wines, a tour of the vineyard and dinner.
