Great afternoon with delicious wine

We booked the half day tour from picton. We started at 12.00 and we're first brought to Blenheim to start the tour. The driver Gary was really friendly and explained us a lot about the different stops. We received a booklet with the bus timetables and stops. Basically you get around 40 min. Per stop. That does mean you will have to select a few places to go as you can't do them all. We stopped at Witherhills (wine tasting for 5 /10 dollar), Fromm (tasting 10/15 dollar), Cork and Keg (we expected a free tasting here but that was no longer the case, dissapointing. But nice beers anyway) and our final stop was Framingham! Tasting 5 dollar (reimbursed upon purchase of a bottle). I would recommend to do some research on where you want to stop upfront as you will have to decide without much time and info about prices etc. Overall we had a great day!

Varied venues, good service

We were running slightly late for the start, the driver waited for us. Good communication from the office. Good service, with some cool spots.
