We had an excellent day out with Chris and Na Clachan Wine Tours.

In the past, we've found our own way around the wineries in Blenheim, but decided this time to go with someone who knows the area. Best decision we could have made.

Chris started by asking which wine styles we were interested in tasting. He then decided which wineries would best show off those wine styles and that became our itinerary for the day - although he was constantly listening to our feedback on the wines we were tasting and considering alternative options. This suited us down to the ground, since it definitely meant we visited wineries we simply wouldn't have considered otherwise.

His commentary throughout the day on the history and story of the area and its wines was also spot on - just the right information at the right time, and able to delve deeper on any subject when we wanted it.

All and all, it was an excellent day. We would highly recommend you consider Na Clachan if you're reading these reviews in order to make your own decision. We will definitely seek him out again in the future and are already recommending him to family and friends.

THE WINE. Chris had superb taste. He asked the party what we liked. That was what we got, but in a manner that challenged whateethouht we knew. Chris is passionate about wine, he is passionate about Marlbourgh, he is passionate abolut Marlbourgh wine.

Chris ailored our trip to what we wanted. He called ahead to ensure that what we wanted was what we got. When we had lingered too long over superb wine and the loosening of tongues which follows, the last winery respected Chris so much that they stayed open beyond an hour that anyone would have considered reasonable.

Chris knows wine. He knows people. He weaves them together.

This tour was simply outstanding price value and the customer experience has to be 10.

We had a fantastic day being guided by Chris around some of the special vineyards in the gorgeous Blenheim region. He tailored the tour to suit us completely. Chris is very knowledgeable and shared his knowledge in a quiet, unobtrusive way. This elevated the wine tour well beyond simply visiting some wineries and trying their wine. We enjoyed his company as well.

Fabulous tour with Chris. Starting with an excellent lunch and tasting at St. Clair vineyard followed by 3 others with exceptional commentary from Chris. He went out of his way to help us enjoy our stay in Blenheim, from calling us a cab to making us a dinner reservation. Sit back, relax and enjoy the Marlborough wines you never heard of but outshine those you have!

Hi Bob and Nancy, thanks for your lovely comments and I am really pleased on 2 counts: 1 you enjoyed the wines and like the fact you taste wines here that you are unaware of and 2, that you enjoyed your evening meal. It is always a little tricky recommending somewhere you enjoy without fully knowing your likes and dislikes. Enjoy the lovely wines you purchased and family time in Queenstown. Cheers Chris

The whole afternoon was fabulous. Chris was a fount of information on our journey between vineyards and organized to stop at wineries that suited our taste. He clearly has a great rapport with the cellar door people which means you get the benefit of that. The lunch at Saint Clair was a nice relaxed way to start the tour.

Picked up by Chris, right on time who then continued to provide a great commentary and insight in to Marlborough’s wine industry, while transporting us around 5 different wineries. Adapted his route to cater for differing wine tastes (our penchant for sweeter wines) and provided opportunities to taste differing wines tempting our palate slightly. Thoroughly recommend Chris and his company for an enjoyable, informative trip, around NZ’s premier grape growing region. DO IT!!

Hi Graham, thanks for your review of your tour with us. It is always great to take kiwis on a tour as well as guests from other countries. The day was a good balancing act to find sweeter wines for you while satisfying the dry wine request from others. It was good to visit wineries offering wines to satisfy both tastes. Enjoy the wines you purchased. Many Thanks Chris

Fantastic afternoon wine tasting. Chris picked us up from Picton, and then we met up with more guests in Blenheim, before heading to St Clair for lunch and wine tasting. The pork belly at St Clair was excellent, and the wine was very good. We went to 3 more vineyards, finishing at Rock Ferry, before getting dropped home. Chris was very informative about the wine industry in Marlborough and was clearly popular with the vineyards.
Would definitely recommend Na Clachan Tours if you are thinking about wine tasting in the region.

Chris provided us with a great introduction to some of the smaller wineries in Marlborough and was an excellent and informative guide. We had a great lunch and tasting at St Clair followed by visits to Gibson Bridge, Nautilus and Whitehaven wineries. We will definitely do this tour again the next time we visits Marlborough.

We had the best day with Bill, he was informative and took us to beautiful wineries that were small and family owned. We stopped at five different locations, all were fantastic (including the lunch spot). His knowledge of the wine/region is second to none and we learnt much more than we expected (in a brilliant way). You could see Bill had been doing this for a while and the rapport he had with the staff at the wineries made it even more special because it felt very personal. Thanks for the best afternoon! Highly highly recommend. And the wine was absolutely delicious!!
