Marlborough Region

You can enjoy our local wines along with a tantalising array of tasty dishes at Marlborough’s many restaurants, cafes and eateries as Marlborough’s talented chefs make the most of the fresh local seafood and other tasty produce to tempt your tastebuds. Or explore the local Farmers Market and create your own masterpiece to go with your favourite local vintage. World renowned Green Shell Mussels, the abundance of Pacific Coast seafood, award-winning local NZ King Salmon found in the pristine waters of the Marlborough Sounds, and wild game are among the gastronomic choices on offer, not to mention seasonal fruits from the local orchards – in a word, yum!
As well as the more renowned Marlborough wine labels there are plenty of family owned and boutique wineries offering their own twist on the region’s traditional Sauvignon Blanc and emerging wine varieties like Pinot Noir, Riesling and other aromatics. Take a behind the scenes tour to meet the winemakers and taste their wares, many of which are available in limited quantities exclusively at their cellar door. You’ll also discover plenty of boutique produce from local growers: including oils,cheeses, pinenuts, honeys, preserves, fine chocolates and even saffron, as well as some fabulous examples of artisan breweries with an array of beers to complement the region’s food.
