Wine tourism is on the rise and cellar doors around Marlborough are reaping the benefits, with one of their busiest seasons yet. Saint Clair restaurant cellar door manager Stefan Wernli said the number of people visiting the cellar door had grown on last season. "It's been really busy lately, much busier than last year, especially during the Christmas and New Year period," he said. During the holiday period, the cellar door restaurant was routinely doing up to 140 lunches a day.
