Overview

We offer daily Wine Tours to some of the finest wineries that Marlborough has to offer. You can choose from our Half day, Full day or Private tours to the picturesque cellar doors of our internationally famous wineries and revel in the stunning aromas and textures of their multi-award winning wines. Our wine tours are fun, informative and flexible – choose the homes of your favourite wine labels or let us show you a mixture of the internationally recognised and the boutique family-run wineries. On a private tour, you can meet the stellar wine makers and have a face to face tutorial on the secrets of viticulture and find out for yourself, the dedication and passion that goes into every bottle. You can even blend your personal vintage from the barrels on display. Jade Tours is a Destination Management company and we pride ourselves in providing an exemplary service to our guests. We will fill your holiday in Marlborough with magical memories. Our links to adventure and leisure activities and scenic bus tours around Marlborough, ensure days filled with fun. If preferred, we can package a full 5 star Marlborough experience from luxury lodges, helicopter transfers and gourmet meals and include your preferences from the Sounds in the north to the Whales in Kaikoura and all the adventure activities in between. We have visits to local breweries and gourmet food producers and local ecological attractions. Our new 12 seater luxury bus will ferry you in supreme comfort from your arrival to departure. Our JADE OWL BED and BREAKFAST has 2 comfortable double rooms with queen sized beds and access to our secluded garden. Jade Tours really does make magical memories in Marlborough.
