Blenheim is the biggest town in Marlborough and the heart of New Zealand winemaking. Famous Sauvignon Blanc got its start here with pioneering winemakers. It is still the region's signature tipple, but Marlborough has many other highly rated wine varieties too. As well as a choice of wines, you also have a fantastic range of car rentals available from the town or Blenheim Airport with VroomVroomVroom.
VroomVroomVroom can help you find the perfect car hire in Blenheim since we compare the best deals. Here are other reasons why you should book with us.
Popularly known as one of the sunniest towns in New Zealand, the climate is usually very settled, mainly because of the rain shadow effect of the mountain ranges to the west which shelters Blenheim from the heaviest of rains.
February is generally the best summer weather and a lovely time to visit. Normally, summers are warm and dry while winters are cool and frosty with clear sunny days that follow. Blenheim also hosts some major events during this month, including the famous Marlborough Wine and Food Festival.
With your rental car, explore sunny Blenheim and spend your days sampling wines from Cloudy Bay, Nautilus, Seresin & Montana Brancott Wineries. Keep in mind that many roads in New Zealand may be narrower than what you are used to.
Driving distance from Blenheim to Nelson is approx. 1 hour and 35 minutes or 114 kilometres (71 miles) via Stage Highway 6 in your rental car. Note that State Highway 1 runs through Blenheim, while State Highway 6 terminates at the junction of the two state highways. Blenheim has no traffic lights at intersections. Instead, the town uses roundabouts to control traffic flow.
What makes an evening romantic? Wine. What substance brings excitement to your palate? Wine. Where is the best place to bring your car hire if you love wine? The only answer is Blenheim, a town in the region of Marlborough, in the northeast of the South Island of New Zealand.
Bear in mind that New Zealand's drink-drive laws have become a lot stricter recently. While your hire car is essential to get around the Marlborough region, consider leaving it at your accommodation if you are doing a tasting tour and utilise the services of any of the town's wine tour experts.
