The peacefully rural Wairarapa region - just over an hour from Wellington - is a world away in style. Wairarapa is the Maori word for Glistening Waters.
The climate and soils are ideal for growing fine foods and beverages, and Zest food and wine tours discover them. We meet people dedicated to the good things of life in this lively gourmet destination.
Premium boutique wines from the Martinborough Wine Village are internationally, echoing Burgundy with its small-scale vineyards and acclaimed Pinot Noir.
A Zest gourmet Wairarapa tour takes you to meet owners of these typically personal businesses, producing high quality olive oil, fruit and specialist culinary products, as well as wines from Martinborough.
The historic town of Greytown is appealing with its boutique stores amid pretty colonial buildings and lovely mature trees
Martinborough Food and Wine Producers Tour
Our luxury Martinborough food and wine tour is for two to four guests only, for a relaxed and personal experience.
This gourmet tour takes us by car with your Zest driver/guide around the small towns of the south Wairarapa: exploring the pretty historical township of Greytown and the celebrated Martinborough wine village.
Our focus is both fine food and wine, as we savour tastes of both from speciality producers. We'll go where few visitors can, up close, meeting innovative people dedicated to being the very best they can be with their premium boutique brands.
In a beautiful pastoral setting, big skies and open spaces give way to small, attractive Victorian townships with their own charm. Naturally, our delicious three course tasting lunch is matched with premium Martinborough wines, possibly from the very vines we can see from the table.
