The region is famous for its fjord-like Marlborough Sounds and its vineyards thrive in one of our sunniest spots. Marlborough covers the north-eastern corner of the South Island. The main town, Blenheim (population around 24,000) is 4½ hours by road from Christchurch, 35 minutes by air from Wellington and about 1½ hours by air from Auckland.
Picton at the head of Queen Charlotte Sound is a busy port town, the southern terminus of the Cook Strait ferries which are an integral part of New Zealand’s main trunk road and rail routes
Aquaculture, specifically green-lipped mussel farming, is an important economic activity. Farming (mainly sheep) is also important but the region’s signature crop is grapes.
In little more than 30 years, Marlborough’s wine industry has led an extraordinary expansion in the production of, and global regard for, New Zealand wines. Marlborough produces well over half of New Zealand’s export wines, and the region is known internationally for the consistent quality and distinctive style of its sauvignon blanc.
Tourism is increasingly important. Alongside its wineries and the playground of the Sounds, visitors are drawn to the excellent whale watching available off the Kaikoura coast to the east

Selling a business entails acute processes—from cleaning up tax records to tidying up a store and updating old operating systems.
Before putting your business on the block, consider getting outside help from a professional business broker. Make sure that you take the time to interview brokers; you don’t want to sign up with the first broker you meet. Make sure that the broker you’re working with has enough expertise and knowledge about the industry you’re in, as well as the resources to deliver leads within the first month. You also want to get a broker that is experienced in the Marlborough region so you may attract the best buyers in the area.
