Between the Wairau and Awatere winegrowing valleys of Marlborough lies The Pass.
Originally The Pass began as a necessary path comprised of bridle tracks along with ferries allowing rivers to be crossed.
Today The Pass is a stretch of modern highway that runs over the mountains between the two valleys.
Its beautiful vistas include abundant thick forests interspersed with densely stocked sheep farms. No matter where you travel, The Pass is a beautiful journey that leads to discovery, adventure and world-class wines.
The Pass connects Marlborough’s Wairau and Awatere winegrowing valleys. Fruit is carefully selected from both valleys to showcase the best
flavour characteristics of the region, through the wines.
