Marlborough – New Zealand's biggest wine-producing region – has an extensive coastline, sheltered waters and forests to frame endless outdoor pursuits.

Marlborough
Marlborough's temperate climate and vast, unspoilt wilderness areas set the scene for indulgence and adventure, whether visitors arrive by boat across the picturesque waters of Marlborough Sounds or fly in over rugged mountains and wide plains with endless rows of perfect vines.
 
Basking in year-round sunshine at the top of the South Island, Marlborough is celebrated for producing exceptional Sauvignon blanc and is responsible for more than 75 per cent of New Zealand’s wine production. Almost anything grows here, and the rich local harvest from land and sea makes it a top destination for connoisseurs of food and wine. 
 
The region’s breathtaking beauty and sun-kissed landscapes are also a magnet for nature-lovers, including hikers tackling New Zealand’s Great Walks and seafarers keen to explore Queen Charlotte Sound and the coastline's many secluded waterways.
