Private 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 specialty 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.

This is a private tour for your group of 2-4 guests. So if it's just two people, we won't take other bookings on this date, making it exclusively your day.
