Discover expansive vineyards nestled within snow-capped mountains and deep blue ocean.
Driving along the golden hills, pink solar salt ponds and vineyards of the Awatere Valley, you'll find snow-capped mountains to one side and the blue Pacific Ocean on the other.
The valley rises to the region's highest peak, Mount Tapuae-o-uenuku, central to Māori legend and the tip of the Southern Alps.
The Awatere is the entrance to the Molesworth Station - New Zealand's largest high-country farm.
Or stop for a wine tasting at the world's most sustainable winery, Yealands Estate, and take in stunning panoramas of vines and ocean along the winery's White Road, winding your way along rows-upon-rows of grape vines.
The highest mountain peak outside of the Southern Alps is visible from almost everywhere in Marlborough and central to Maori legend. Some climb it, and everyone admires it.
