BLENHEIM, Marlborough Wine Region


A visit to the Dr’s has never felt better! Dr’s John and Brigid Forrest own Forrest Estate Wines in the heart of the world famous Sauvignon Blanc capital – The Marlborough Wine Region. While on tour of New Zealand, I joined John Forrest at his Estate for a private behind the scenes walk of the vineyard and winery and learnt why the Marlborough area produces such great quality wines. We discovered the barrel room with its amazing pungent smells of oak barrels, and John’s passion for wine and his love of experimenting with different varietals.

The Dr’s prescribed us a healthy dose of their fantastic Sauvignon Blanc and a soft but flavoursome Pinot Noir, followed by a five course degustation dinner paired to Forrest Wines. One should not underestimate their Noble Riesling, an excellent match with dessert.

From amateurs to connoisseurs Blenheim is a must see location.


Let us prescribe the correct dose for you!!

Earlier this week I travelled from Los Angeles to Auckland and then onto Christchurch New Zealand; flying with Air New Zealand, our national carrier is an experience that aways leaves me proud to be a Kiwi.

National Geographic - Best of the World 2012 | Luxury Travel | New Zealand | Australia | South Pacific | Rwanda

In a land where adrenaline lovers ride rockets suspended on wires and roll downhill inside giant plastic balls, biking seems one of the saner ways to plunge into a landscape that compels exploration: hot springs, glaciers, rain forests, and volcanoes, encircled by nearly 10,000 miles of coastline, packed into a country barely bigger than Colorado.
