Tours by Luxury Escapes. Leave the living room behind and enjoy your Sauvignon Blanc in style on this luxurious 6-day small-group tour (max. 12 travellers) through the rolling vineyards, secluded coves and ancient valleys of New Zealand’s stunning Marlborough Sounds.
Beginning in Blenheim, the gateway to the iconic Marlborough wine region, enjoy a two-night stay at Blenheim’s historic Hotel d’Urville and treat your tastebuds to a fabulous full-day wine tour. Journey through some of the country’s most celebrated tipples, from Cloudy Bay’s signature chardonnay to Fromm’s highly acclaimed pinot noir, and, of course, some of the world’s best sauvignon blanc. Continue to picturesque Picton where you’ll set sail on a spectacular cruise through the ethereal beauty of Queen Charlotte Sound. Discover a bounty of breathtaking bays and indulge in an exclusive seafood tasting with a jaw-dropping backdrop of forested peaks and ink-blue depths.
Your cruise delivers you to the five-star Bay of Many Coves Resort, a secluded sanctuary set amid 52 hectares of private native bush and bordered by an intricate coastline of sheltered inlets and sandy bays. With three decadent nights at the resort, there’s plenty of time to hike through the surrounding forest, kayak around the majestic headlands or idle the days away on your piece of private beach. Join a wilderness expert for a fascinating walk along a pristine section of the Queen Charlotte Track and venture further into untouched paradise: traverse blankets of lush ferns, learn about the region’s Māori history and take in unforgettable views across the sound.
You’ll also have endless opportunities throughout to share in Marlborough’s internationally renowned gourmet heritage with all meals included throughout your tour, in addition to exclusive tastings, fine-dining feasts and a plethora of delicious wines.
