We decided a day off from the bicycles was necessary and headed over to Blenheim and Renwick to taste some of the famous Marlborough wines. We arranged to meet up with Anne-Laure and her friend for the day and Aaron was designated driver chauffeuring his harem of women. We went to three vineyards in the morning. We started at Nautilus, then a rather random one and then ended at Saint Clare. This was followed by a long lunch break with some good food at the Saint Clare winery cafe to soak up the Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot's from the mornings tastings. With our tastebuds refreshed we managed another three wineries in the afternoon including Matua, Spy Valley and Cloudy Bay.
