Picton Shore Excursion: Wings of Omaka and Marlborough Wine Tour
This small group, maximum 12 passenger tour, departs from Picton with you guide on an informative and very scenic drive through Picton and Blenheim to Omaka and the wineries of the Marlborough Region.
Your first stop is at the Omaka Aviation Heritage Museum which attracts visitors from around the world to see their impressive collection of early “flying machines” and WW1 and WW2 fighter aircraft. There will be time for some lunch at the museum’s café, if required. (At own expense)
For the wine tour after lunch, you will visit a range of pre-selected wineries from the large, through to the small family-run wineries, where you can taste the zesty Sauvignon Blancs and a wide variety of our other tasty cultivars.
Depending on your cruise ships departure time, you will usually visit 2 – 3 wineries. Visit the barrel rooms to experience the rich aromas of wine maturing in French oak barrels and hear how the grapes are processed into the unique multi-award winning wines for which the valley is so famous.
On the way back to Picton, you will stop at the Chocolate factory to taste their hand made gourmet chocolates. This is a brilliant way to end this exceptional day.
