Sip your way around Martinborough — a once sleepy colonial town that’s now a prominent wine village at the heart of the Classic New Zealand Wine Trail — on this private day trip from Wellington. Following hotel or port pickup and a scenic drive through the Wairarapa, you’ll visit three of Martinborough’s renowned wineries. Enjoy a guided wine tasting at each and a lunch platter with wine at Poppies Martinborough. Then, choose to continue hopping around Martinborough’s wineries or travel to nearby Greytown, whose pretty streets are thronged with cafes and antique stores.
Well, it was certainly Private! I did the Wine Tour on a Sunday, a bit off-season, and when the driver-guide John collected me right on time there was only me! Nothing daunted, John gave me the full tour, and it was very enjoyable indeed. He was excellent company, and we chatted away for seven or eight hours, drawing on his life time experiences in the area.
We visited three wineries and an olive farm, I tasted several wines very happily, and we demolished a really memorable lunch platter. I learned a lot about olives and the Martinborough Region, and really enjoyed the spectacular country we traversed.
The Tour turned out to be all that it promised and more, and a high point of my visit to Wellington.
John even gave me an excellent recommendation for dinner.
Great, good wines and nice people. Very beautiful landscapes.
