The big picture
Marlborough is New Zealand's premier wine region, producing more than three-quarters of national output and globally renowned for its sauvignon blanc. That translates into attractive investment opportunities in viticulture – but there's much more to Marlborough than wine.
Marlborough boasts innovative manufacturing and engineering industries, with a particular emphasis on aviation and viticulture technology. It also hosts extensive aquaculture production and associated research, along with other high-quality primary production across its diverse landscapes.
Marlborough is a prime tourist destination, with its luxury food and wine offerings and the iconic Marlborough Sounds attracting visitors from around the world. There's scope for growth and solid returns in the tourism sector, including leveraging the region's strengths in the cruise ship and conference travel markets.
