A wine tasting trip to Marlborough

A group of us took a run up state highway one to Picton, stayed an overnight and became wine connoisseurs for a few hours.What did I enjoy most? The ride. It was a lot better than most of the wines we tried. The run up the Pacific coast highway north of Kaikoura is in my opinion one of the best motorcycling roads around. Twisty, scenic and not a dull stretch on it. SoI will let the photos do the talking.

PRENZEL tastings. Not wine but distilled goodies. This place is well worth a visit.

A lovely cafe at Kekerengu.

Finally on the way home we stopped off at this cafe. It sits on the beach and was a perfect rest stop on the way home.
