Flowers, Wine and Chocolate

See the best of Marlborough with a beautiful garden, a trip to a chocolate factory and wine tasting at a local vineyard. Depart your ship for Upton Oaks where the gardens have been developed over many years and have been created to harmonise with the style of the 1911 Victorian villa. Today the garden consists of different areas all contained within a formal framework of hedges and walls. A favourite feature is the large formal 17th century style knot garden which is divided into different colour sections by buxus. Travel to Makana Boutique Chocolate factory where handmade chocolates and other natural temptations are made. Try a sample and maybe purchase a few as gifts. Before returning to your ship, visit a local winery for some wine tasting.
