Marlborough Vineyards

There is an amazing wine region between Nelson and Kaikoura, so naturally we had to stop at a few wineries en route to our new home :) We only had time to visit 3, but we sampled some delicious (and some not so delicious) wines. I'm not really a wine connoisseur so I won't go into any more detail, but it was well worth the visit. We were also rewarded with some excellent views of the region. 

We will be back here in about a month for Scott, Ryan and Charlotte to run the vineyard half marathon!


Grapes!
Wineries have nice landscaping
Highfield was probably our favourite of the three wineries we visited...look how cool it is!

Grapes as far as the eye can see...

That's a lot of wine!
