Take a gourmet journey through the South Island's Marlborough region and discover your appetite for New Zealand.

Leave the pier at Shakespeare Bay and drive through pretty Koromiko and the fertile Wairau Valley to Blenheim - the premier wine producing region of New Zealand. The countryside and hills around Blenheim has been a favorite subject for New Zealand's top artists since the 1800s.

Visit the Prenzel Tasting Room located at The Vines, a boutique collection of unique retail shops, nestled on a beautiful five acre property. Prenzel features a vast range of products encompasses fruit brandies, limited edition liqueurs, schnapps, infused rice bran oils and gourmet vinegars. You will enjoy a tasting of the Prenzel liqueurs as your host tells you of the products background and the company's history. You will also have the opportunity to browse through the other shops specializing in high quality New Zealand products.

There will also be a visit to the Spy Valley Winery, so named for its proximity to the Waihopai Spy Base.  Here you will have an opportunity to sample a number of the wines that they have on offer. They will describe in detail the different tastes and nuances of each wine and answer your questions personally.

Then through the busy little town of Blenheim to visit the Makana Boutique Chocolate Factory, watch the chocolate makers at work as you sample some of the tantalizing confections. The chocolate is made fresh every day and there is a mouth-watering range of tastes, flavors and textures.

Your tour coach then returns you to the ship.
