Five months ago, my husband Clark and I were interviewed by the Philippines’ media personality Raffy Tulfo of TV5 network in his TV and radio segment ‘Hello OFW’. The segment features Filipinos living abroad. Our vacation rental in the heart of the wine capital of New Zealand, in Blenheim, was featured.
I grew up in a farm in my hometown, Pamplona, Cagayan where organic vegetables, free range chicken, pigs and fresh seafood catch from the river and sea are our main staple. Anytime, we can just pick vegetables and herbs to go with crabs, fish and shellfish.
Marlborough is New Zealand’s wine region since it produces 75% percent of the country’s wines. Touring Blenheim in Marlborough is not complete without trying their white wine. Good thing Blenheim’s cellar doors offer free tastings. So, drink and be merry!
Book Mountain View Villa Luxury Lodge for your vacation rental and be assured of a strategic base or center from where you can check out Blenheim’s touristy spots.
The architecture of Mountain View Villa Luxury Lodge is designed in such as way that it maximizes its location. True to its proposition of “vacationing at its peak,” every part of the villa offers incredible sights. Glass doors and floor-to-ceiling windows provide visual access to Marlborough’s exquisite attractions such as Wairau Valley, Cook Straits, Cloudy Bay Vineyard, Wither Hills Farm, Mountain Bike Park, Mount Richmond, and more.
