Overview

An hour or so north of Wellington, Martinborough is fast making a name for itself as one of the Southern Hemisphere’s leading wine regions. Each weekend, Wellingtonians make the trek over the Remutakas to escape to this European-style wine village. This small group tour is a convenient way to visit Martinborough. There’s no need to stress about driving on country backroads, and no need to plan the day’s itinerary - leaving you to focus on the wine and the iconic scenery.
  • Get to know local vinters with a cellar door tasting or a sit down experience
  • Your guide knows which wineries are worth the visit and when their cellar doors are open
  • Even if you spit during your wine tastings, it’s safest not to drink and drive
  • Don’t stress about logistics: your guide takes care of all cellar door and wine tasting fees

Awesome day. Very knowledgeable staff.. Must have spent bit too long drinking the wine because we had to be quick at the last stop being the cheese shop.

Thanks for the great review. Delighted to hear you enjoyed the tour and the wine! Apologies if the visit to C'est Cheese felt a bit rushed. We are only scheduled to call in there for a short time. Our foodie tours include a more comprehensive visit to C'est Cheese for next time perhaps :)

Half Day Martinborough wine tour

Although our driver was pleasant & Hotel pick up was great, thought we may have been asked about our preferences & our favorite wines .We found the 3 choices of wineries where not that great ,our 1ST winery their wine tasting pours were disappointing to say the least. 2ND stop could've been a way better experience,we felt like we were just shoved around the corner, on outdoor table seating, with no umbrellas & felt like an inconvenience,although they were fun, not professional. Some of our Tour group wanted lunch before our 3rd stop, which was fitted in for us & all agreed to do lunch before our last stop. We drove back into the town we had just driven around, before our 2ND winery. Had 45minutes, We took ourselves to The Wine Bank to give a wine tour feel atleast, another couple joined us which was fun. Our 3RD winery dont even know the name but some cheap barn feeling place, although he was friendly only served us Reds & I'm not a red drinker . Shame to have an disappointing experience in the wineries we were taken to. Flet Like we were driven around the blocks a few times also before arriving at wineries,we thinking to fill in time, but was a waste of our time would've rather just gone straight to the winery.

Hi Gary, Sorry to hear our Martinborough Winery Tour wasn't up to your expectations. We do pride ourselves on giving our guests a great experience outside of their wine preferences and I'm sorry that this wasn't the case for you. We do usually provide guests a bit of flexibility on winery choices but on New Years Day there is limited choice as a vast majority of the wineries don't open on Jan 1st. That being said the wineries you visited were Poppies, Moy Hall and Muirlea Rise which are small boutique locally owned and operated wineries with a focus on Pinot Noir. Classic Martinborough and great examples of the region and wineries we visit regularly throughout the year. Guests on your tour were given the option of a tapas style lunch at the second winery (Moy Hall) or a range of options in the Martinborough Town Square which is what you all opted for.

We really enjoyed our half day trip. Philip really knows his stuff and gave us much information about the area, the wineries and their owners. We tasted some lovely wines, ate some lovely food and met some lovely people. Only regret was not booking for the full day wine and food tour...........that sounded fabulous........

I was in Wellington for the weekend with my 25 year old son and last minute we decided to do a wine tour. Phil our guide was quick to respond to our booking and picked us up promptly as he said he would for our tour. We enjoyed our day and Phil was very informative about the Wellington area and the various Martinborough vineyards. We enjoyed the vineyards we visited. I would recommend this tour and guide.

It was really great, my tour guide was very knowledgeable about everything. I was lucky to have a private tour. If you are a Lord of the Rings fan, then it’s a must do.
