Since 1998, the Marlborough Web Directory web site has been one of the principal entry points for people using the Internet to search for activities, accommodation, business services and investment opportunities in the Marlborough region. The site has provided businesses and organisations in the Marlborough region with a vehicle to effectively promote their products and services to the wider Internet community.

After an extensive period of development, the web site has undergone its third complete revamp, with a whole range of new features added or redefined. We have retained the categories that are of inertest to visitors to the area: accommodation, activities, wineries, business, etc., and we've introduced a number of new sections, including a 'fact file' section that outlines Marlborough's population, history and our community.

Why did we do it? We believe that effective and cooperative promotion of the Marlborough region on the Web will create a 'flow-on' effect for all businesses in Marlborough. We have endeavoured to create a web site that can establish 'linkages' from Marlborough to the world. We will continue to offer free listings, although we do ask for reciprocal links.

We hope you will enjoy using our new site and we look forward to hearing any feedback you might have. If you'd like to contact us, please send an email to editor@discovermarlborough.co.nz

It's a Fact...
THE FIRST VINES
Although Marlborough's current status as a wine producing region began in 1973 with Montana's plantings, the region's grape growing heritage actually began a century before. Pioneer winemakers David Herd and Charles Empson planted the first Marlborough vineyard in 1873. Empson died soon after the first harvest in 1875, but Herd went on to win prizes for his well regarded red muscatel wine. The winery survived until 1931.
