"This will possibly be the most fun you will ever have on a bike" The beautiful thing about Renwicks' cellar doors is that not only are they so incredibly close to us, and each other (the first one is literally 2 minutes from our front gate), but biking around them is really easy, even for those who haven't been on a bike for ages :-) We have a number of bike paths and quiet roads to ride on, you don't need to book an appointment ahead of time to do a tasting session with them like you do in other countries, and the cellar door teams are happy to answer any questions you may have about growing wine in Marlborough and also the wine they have on offer at the cellar door. You have the complete freedom to choose for yourselves which of the 17+ cellar doors you would like to visit and we are on hand to help you decide who they will be based on what wines you like, how far you are happy to bike and where you fancy stopping for lunch. Your time on the bikes is self-guided/unguided because we want you to be able to just take it easy, go at your own pace, visit to each cellar door for as long or as short as you want without feeling under pressure to keep up with anyone else who may be starting at the same time as you. If you need us at all whilst you are out on the bikes, we are but a phone call away - as we have a full emergency backup service in place at all times. We take our host responsibility very seriously and want you, as well as everyone else around you, to stay safe. This is why we like to offer you FREE PICKUP AND DROP-OFF from your accommodation and that way you don't have to worry about drink/driving or risk riding out from Blenheim on the busy state highway 100km/h roads. Our package includes - a choice of step-through retro cruiser bikes, including tandems and trikes with baskets on the front, hi-vis helmets, panniers that carry 4 wine bottles, a bottle of spring water, detailed winery map plus the full emergency backup service. For those with families we have tow-alongs, trailers & child seats too if required (all free of charge). These are our pickup times, so that you don’t have to worry about drinking and driving:- Tour A Complimentary Pick-Up between 9.30am and 9.50am Briefing starts at 10.00am, tour ends at 3.15pm Drop-Off by 3.30pm Tour B Complimentary Pick-Up between 10.30am and 10.50am Briefing starts at 11.00am, tour ends at 4.15pm Drop-Off by 4.30pm Tour C Complimentary Pick-Up between 11.30am and 11.50am Briefing starts at 12.00pm, tour ends at 5.15pm Drop-Off by 5.30pm If you want to have some laughs and get the chance to sample some beautiful wine and food, just give us a call as we would love to help make it happen for you. Cheers Steve and Jo

My husband and I have a great day on our tandem bike. Jo was extremely friendly and accommodating with our booking ( given that we changed the pick up time quite a few times) and Steve made sure we were comfortable before heading off.

Hiya Steph. It was great to hear from you. Renwick is a stunning place to cycle around on a sunny Marlborough day, but we still get loads of our lovely bikers choosing to come and join us even if it is an overcast day/rainy... More
