Visitors in vintage

Sixty undertakers from around New Zealand undertook a Magic Marlborough challenge where they travelled around Blenheim and its surrounds in vintage cars.

In a race against time the teams toured wineries and put together the best platter for $20.

The undertakers have been in Blenheim for three days for their annual conference.

Funeral Directors Association of New Zealand chief executive Katrina Shanks said it was a good opportunity for the delegates to see the beauty of Marlborough.

"It was a totally amazing day," she said.

"Marlborough is so beautiful, there is no better way to get around than in vintage cars.

"We drove around town and to six wineries. They were wonderful places that had amazing food and wine."
