About Blenheim and the Marlborough Region:

The warm and friendly town of Blenheim is an ideal base for those who want to explore the local wine and food culture. Situated in the heart of wine-growing Marlborough, Blenheim is one of the sunniest towns in New Zealand.

It is a place of incredible natural beauty.
