Business Category Award Entrant 

Explore Marlborough Wine Tours runs biking and driving wine tours of the Marlborough wine region. They are owned and operated by local couple Karen Walshe and Andrew Wright.

The company’s focus is on biking wine tours. They are the only company running guided biking wine tours, and they also offer self-guided tours.

Marlborough has become known as one of New Zealand’s best destinations to bike the vineyards due to its flat cycling, tightly clustered wineries, high quality wine, friendly people and stunning scenery. Our base at The Vines Village is an ideal place to start a day’s wine touring as it sits on the Golden Mile in the heart of the wine region. From here cyclists have easy access to the bike paths and river stop-bank, with over 15 wineries within three kilometres. With a full range of adult bikes as well kids’ bikes, tandems and e-bikes, everyone is catered for.
