Martinborough wine country
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 Martinborough Food and Wine Producers 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.
We specialise in small groups, with this tour limited to just four guests to maximise your enjoyment.
