Explore the wine village of Martinborough, at the heart of the Classic New Zealand Wine Trail.
Bring your appetite to Martinborough, where Pinot Noir and excellent restaurants promise to ease you into a very happy state of mind. From Martinborough’s village centre you can stroll to any or all of the 30 local vineyards, making for a unique walking-wine-tour experience. Pick up a map from the visitors centre. If you can’t find the time or energy to wander from vineyard to vineyard, there’s a wine centre where you can sample many wines under one roof.
Accommodation in this area is full of character. Stay at a country estate, boutique hotel or find a self-contained heritage cottage. There are B & Bs and farmstays in every direction. To counteract the effects of over-indulgence, try a hike around the Patuna Chasm Walkway.
Martinborough is just over an hours drive from Wellington making it a great day trip.
