  • Worth Every Cent!

    Spent an amazing day touring with my wife on a private tour. David was very knowledgeable and tailored our tour to suite our personal taste. Was a wonderful way to spend our anniversary which David generously recognised with a surprise gift at the end of the tour!

    If you love wine I would highly recommend a private tour.

  • Classic Car Wine Tour

  • Classic Car Wine Tour

  • Here's a fantastic opportunity to cruise around Marlborough’s wonderful wine region in a real American Classic car.

    A day's Wine Tour in one of these "Iconic Classics" is a day to remember! Whether you're celebrating a special occasion, on honeymoon, want to treat someone or just LOVE your cars like we do!

    Our 1967 Mustang convertible represents the timeless style that was to set future car trends. Book the Mustang Convertible and experience the freedom of the open-top touring around the Marlborough Wineries.

    Another timeless favourite is our 1975 VW Kombi (aka Combi), more affectionately dubbed "The SPLITTY". Schedule your own personal tour in this very Iconic Classic Vee Dub  "VINE WAGON" or join up with other Vee Dubbers (max 6). Either way your day is tailored at a relaxing pace, a fun & enjoyable day to remember.

    Note:  This is a Volkswagen so you may be required to "push" at some time throughout the day!!!

    Your private Classic Car Wine Tour can include a "Vines to Wines" experience at a winery. You will be shown through their Vine Library and vineyard learning about the very beginning of the grapes growth through to harvest and their wine-making procedure. Then you’ll head through into the barrel hall to taste the wine straight from the barrel before it is bottled.

    Enjoy a great day out cruising in Marlborough in your choice of Classic Car and capture the many photo opportunities and memories that will last a lifetime!

  • Honeymoon Surprise

    My wife booked a surprise wine tour for me in Blenheim with Highlight. She was pretty nervous about booking anything as I've done a lot of wine tours in the past. She needn't have worried at all.

    David was perfect, he is passionate about wines, knows loads of the local places (including ones we suggested not just 4 or 5 like some guides do), not in the slightest bit pompous towards those that don't know much about wines, very flexible and a great guy to spend the day with. I was lucky enough that the trip was booked for me in his beautiful mustang which is a stunning car in great condition and very well looked after.

    Nothing was too much trouble and I'd highly recommended him. I'd book again in a heartbeat.

  • Fab day with Family, Friends & Highlight Wine Tours!

    What an absolutely amazing day. 10 of us were picked up in Picton with Colleen, from the moment I meet her I knew this was going to be a great day, she certainly didn't disappoint.

    We stopped at Rock Ferry winery for lunch, the food was fantastic. We had about 6 stops in total & didn't feel like we had to rush. My favourite stop was No1, the methode traditionelle (champers) was yum & the Jewellery was very nice & good prices. We had a blast & we all definitely recommend Highlight Wine Tours. I hope to see you again soon.

    Thank you Colleen for making this day so special.
