What can you see and do in Blenheim?
Blenheim is the gateway to New Zealand’s wine world with 30 different wineries, most of which are located in the Marlborough region. This means that wine tasting is the first thing you need to do once you visit Blenheim. You won’t just enjoy the taste of wine but you can take a bike and have an enjoyable ride exploring the surrounding area. Wine is not the only thing to taste at Blenheim, beer lovers can have their special spot too. At Dodson Street, there’s a vintage-themed beer garden that is famous for its craft beer and variety of tasty food. If you’re visiting Blenheim during February, you shouldn’t miss New Zealand’s famous wine and food festival with live music and entertainment performances. The tasting journey doesn’t stop at this point. If you have a sweet tooth, Makana Confections is the perfect place to go. There, you’ll have some free chocolate tasting and watch chocolate being made. For those who are interested in history and heritage, make sure you visit Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre to discover WW1 and WW2 aircraft history and know more about the evolution of aviation.
