Wine Tours By Bike package

Keeping you, and those around you safe, is our number one priority so if you are staying the night in Blenheim or Renwick after your tour, please consider using our free pickup and drop-off service from your accommodation, rather than risk driving to us.  You are very welcome to park your car/campervan on site, free of charge whilst out on your tour.

What makes our bike tours different is that, instead of us choosing which of the cellar doors you are going to visit and have you go around as part of one big group, your tour is self-guided so your time is going to be very much your own.  You will have the freedom to make up your own mind and decide which cellar doors you want to visit,  you can go at your own pace and stay as long or as short a time at each place as you want and you won’t feel pressured to keep up with others that go out at the same time as you. 

Our fully inclusive package includes:

list checkA base in the vineyards – no need to cycle 10km (6 miles) from Blenheim to Renwick each way before you reach a winery.

list checkFree collection and return of you and your party from accommodation within 15km (9 miles) of our base, so no worries about drinking and driving.

list checkFully supported service in case of breakdown, puncture, injury or illness to ensure a worry-free day.

list checkA detailed wine map and advice on the best routes you should take to get to your chosen cellar doors so that you know you will be making the most of your time whilst out.  For those who might not be too confident on a bike or if you are a family with very young children, we do have recommended routes that will cater for you as these include family-friendly cellar doors and also quiet roads and bike paths.

list checkA choice of well maintained bicycles and helmets, bottled water and 4 bottle wine carriers to hold those all important purchases plus baskets on the front.

All inclusive price:

$45.00 per adult for a single cruiser / cruiser trike
$30.00 per child bike
$80.00 per couple for a cruiser tandem – ultimate in tandem riding

Support Service

We provide total worry-free cycle hire and if you should be unlucky enough to have a puncture or breakdown our support vehicle will come to you and repair your bike or provide a replacement.

Tasting Charges and Etiquette

Tasting charges are at the discretion of the individual winery and they are made directly to you. These can range from $5.00-$10.00 per person per tasting.

Each winery will have a dedicated cellar door staff member/winery owner who will host the tasting and guide you through the available wines. They will pour the wines for you, explaining a little about each of them and they are more than happy to answer any questions you may have. It is recommended that white wines are tasted first with red wines to follow and then dessert wines last. Wine tasting can be very subjective so don't worry if you don't like them all!!

Please be conscious of those around you who are also there to experience the cellar door and allow them to enjoy their tasting and ask questions.

Be courteous to your hosts as for many of them, the cellar door will be an extension of their home and producing wines is their passion which they welcome you to enjoy and experience.
