Information

Flexible, friendly Marlborough wine tour with a knowledgeable guide who shares your enthusiasm for wine

Join Na Clachan on a voyage of discovery around some of Marlborough's fantastic wineries. Immerse yourself in the fascinating stories of challenges, disappointments, successes and incredible personalities that have made this region world famous in the wine world.

Na Clachan grew grapes for 12 seasons for Allan Scott Family Estate so we pride ourselves on our knowledge of Marlborough wines from the roots to the glass.

Take a stroll through the vineyard as we explain how Marlborough's grapes are planted, pruned, managed and harvested. And of course sample a range of Marlborough's delicious wines. Sauvignon blanc may be the dominant force in this area but with over 15 grape varieties grown we have a wine to suit every palate.

With pick-up and drop-off at your Marlborough accommodation, comfortable air-conditioned vehicle and a flexible itinerary all you have to do is relax and enjoy the views, wines, fellow travellers and stories that make your day a feast for all your senses.

Choose from a full day tour (not for the faint hearted, this is the marathon of wine tours), half day with lunch or afternoon tour and leave the rest to the team at Na Clachan.

We were picked up and dropped off by the tour guide who took us to five vineyards. They were all in beautiful locations and our tour guide, Helen, was excellent. Would recommend!

Enjoyed a splendid wine tasting tour and lunch with Helen and Chris of Na Clachan in Sep 2016. Absolutely great time had by myself and fellow wine tourist (Andy). Thoroughly recommend Na Clachan to anyone who wants to book a similar wine tasting tour.
HISTORY: Na Clachan is Scots Gaelic meaning ‘the stones’ or a ‘meeting place’. Helen explained the name reflected the Na Clachan team’s desire to bring people together in a stony place (characteristic of Marlborough region's soils) to meet, taste and enjoy wine together.
LOGISTICS: Very straightforward. Na Clachan team picked up and dropped off myself and my fellow wine tourist at our camp-site doorsteps. Could not be more easy and convenient logistics wise.
WHAT TOUR COVERS: Very Comprehensive. My tour started with lunch and wine-tasting at the Allan Scott family winery (excellent opportunity to make sure your stomach is fully lined before wine tasting) then visit to a further 4 wineries selected by Helen. Lunch and tour lasted from 12 noon to 5 pm. You can choose which wineries to go to and Na Clachan team will plan into your tour. In my case I was happy to go with whatever Helen suggested.
FRIENDLINESS/KNOWLEDGE OF TEAM: Excellent. Most of my tour was with Helen. Helen combined knowledge, experience and fun in a perfect package. She helped me expand my wine-tasting descriptions from “yummy” and “deelish” to “spicy”, “lemon and limey” and even “flinty/minerally”. She also introduced me to the wonders of NZ’s Gerwurtraminers (total revelation - my new favourite wine). Honestly can't think of a better person to go wine-tasting with (note– I started the lunch part of tour with Chris who was also great – thanks Chris).

Blenheim Wine Tour. Took all day trip; given choice of which vineyards we wanted to visit. Helen was a great guide - knowledgable. Seresin Estate has good wine and spectacular flavoured olive oil - all organic.

Really friendly and funny guide, with lots of knowledge and inside information. Try Helen's (the guide) own grapes in the sparkling wine at Alan Scott.

Helen was a great host who picked us from our hotel, took us to many interesting vineyards and gave us a lot of information about Marlborough wine. And because we were interested in the organic side of things, she made sure we got to see many of organic winemakers.
