Marlborough Wine Region New Zealand – The world famous Marlborough wine growing region is located on the north part of of New Zealand’s South Island. If you are coming from Wellington on the north Island hop on a ferry and drive south east of the town of Picton. By far this area is known for its excellent crisp, clean Sauvignon Blancs and to a lesser extent its Pinot Noirs. This region is home to New Zealand’s largest producing wine industry. During a brief stop in this area we visited Fromm Winery. They produce some very nice sweet Rieslings.
If you are in the area be sure to stop at this winery and also try their nice selection of wines.

This region is also home to a number of hiking trails (tracks). Read more about our South Island New Zealand experiences here.
