Marlborough is noted as one of the worlds best regions for producing wine – particularly that crispy delicious little number which smells like ‘summer in a glass’ that we like to call Sauvignon Blanc! And trust us….. Summer can’t come quickly enough!
Marlborough took centre stage for the production of ‘Sauv’ in the 1980’s ad hasn’t looked back since. Boasting a combination of a cooler climate with lots of sunshine hours, low rainfall and fertile soils, make it the perfect spot to grow vines. The region has grown exponentially since the 80’s and is now proud to boast over 141 wineries with a wide range of varieties to sample! It’s now a perfect day trip for a taste whatever your tipple may be with not just award winning wineries but breweries, cideries and cheeses to match!

Reason 1: It takes the stress of you
Here at Hop on Hop off Wine and Beer Tours, we understand that most visitors only have a day or two in the region and during that time they want to see the best of what the region has to offer. Often when visiting any new area, some guidance and wisdom goes a long way and can help minimise your planning time drastically. Choose a tour with us and that is exactly what happens! We have already listed the best venues to visit in the area which narrows your search down from 141 venues of choice to the top 22!
Reason 2: Take your time to explore different venues.
On our website we have a list of all the venues which you can ‘Hop Off’ at with their opening times, a short blurb regarding what they specialise in, their contact information and a special HoHo deal for selected venues! Our buses run every 30 mins to an hour so you can sit back and be collected when you are ready, no need to rush! We have a handy map and timetable (available to view on our website and printed for you on the day) which you can use to plan your day and check when pick up times are. All you have to do is decide which bus to ‘Hop on”.
Reason 3: Its less expensive
With a large number of wine tours already available, the price can vary greatly from operator to operator. We are proud to say we are the least expensive wine tour operator in the region! But choosing a less expensive trip does not lead to a less efficient product in this instance. We pride ourselves on the time and consideration which goes into planning an efficient trip from a fuel and a timing perspective thus allowing for a more economical product, allowing us to charge you less! Lunch and tastings are not included in our ticket – meaning any drinks, tastings or culinary delights you would like to consume on the day are all at your own cost and choice. We often hear clients tell us how this makes the whole day more affordable and provides greater flexibility. You can make the decision on not only where to stop but what to consume on site at a particular venue thus allowing you to decide on a glass in the sun or a more in depth tasting with an expert.
