A Day in Marlborough
April 21, 2007  
  • Vinyards fill the broad Wairau Valley; Nelson is beyond the rugged Richmond Range.
  • Highfield Estate winery and restaurant.
  • Vines share space with Highfield diners.
  • The Awatere Valley, where vineyards are rapidly replacing sheep paddocks. Tapuae-o-Uenuku, the highest mountain north of the Southern Alps, rises above.
  • Lifestyle for sale!
  • Sheep in the Waihopai, another valley in transition.
  • Waihopai vineyard.
  • Vineyards backed by dry hills and mountains, the classic Marlborough view.
  • Nelson's Moutere Hills, closer to home,  often described as New Zealand's prettiest wine region.
