Marlboroughs Artisan Hub
In Marlboroughs wine country there is a delightful little village 15 minutes away from Blenheim. Full of artisan stores, food and wine.
The cutest gift shop with New Zealand products and artists. Full of household knicknacks homeware, ceramics, glassware and candles. And yes it was named after the song ‘Lilac Wine by Jeffrey Buckly’.
A great selection of gourmet products from Marlborough and New Zealand. Many of these include oils, sauces, conserves, liqueurs, vinaigrettes and craft beers. Gourmet Collection has their own sauces and dressings produced here in Marlborough. They also stock my favourite… Prenzels Pantry.
A quirky shop owned and operated by Interior Designer Alex Fulton. She definitely likes to push the boundaries and it’s paid off! You can’t help but be inspired when you leave.
Mihi Merino & The Quilters Barn
In Mihi Merino there is a big selection of merino wool clothing, you are sure to keep warm and stylish all winter.
The Quilters Barn offers you all your quilting and sewing needs. Do you want to learn how to sew? Your in luck! They offer sewing classes, it’s never too late to learn.
Old Orchard Cafe
We stopped in for lunch at the Old Orchard Cafe. It has recently been revamped and looks so inviting.
The perfect indoor/outdoor feel without the chill of the early spring chill but still being able to enjoy the view of the beautiful lake and water feature. If your lucky the swans will be having a bath. Great food and service.
Whitehaven Cellar Door
Feeling happy after our lunch we stepped into Whitehaven to be great by a warm and welcoming local.
One of the best wine tastings I have done. I was impressed at how much she new and I got some tasty recommendations for bbqs this summer so I can have the perfect wine with my meal.
D’vine Gelato & Confections
I am so glad we stopped into D’vine before we jetted off home.
Full of tasty Marlborough Fudge and a small selection of sweets from the UK.
I can’t forget the Gelato. I tried Berry, a dairy free option. I can not wait to try them all.
A special mention to Iolite 100% natural food for your skin.
A Marlborough company and cruelty free.
