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!
Important vacation tip: if you’re a diehard wine lover, schedule your vacation at Mountain View Villa Luxury Lodge in February, the month of the Marlborough Food and Wine Festival. Described as New Zealand’s “best and longest-running food and wine festival,” the one-day event is packed with entertainment, aviation shows, celebrity chef cooking demos, and (need we say) overflowing food and wine.
Mountain View Villa Luxury Lodge also offers fine food and drinks. While you savor the amenities, you can certainly eat in style! Thanks to an in-house chef who can whip up any kind of cuisine. Watch him prepare the delicious food in the well-equipped MasterChef kitchen. Afterwards, feast on the sumptuous dishes in the formal dining room whose centerpiece is a custom-built 16-seater mahogany dining table. The perfect wine to go with the meal? Why, Marlborough’s Sauvignon Blanc, of course!
If you prefer to dine al fresco, there’s the poolside where you can sip cool juices and munch on sandwiches. For an impromptu picnic, grill your own hotdogs and barbecues at the custom-made wood-fired oven.
