Martinborough Wine Tour Extravaganza

Travel in comfort with a professional guide through Hutt Valley to Rimutaka Ranges. Pass through the sleepy town of Featherston, heading east to Martinborough. The rural New Zealand countryside welcomes you to a variety of beautiful wineries, where you can sample award-winning wines, such as the Pinot Noir the region is known for.

With a choice of over 20 picturesque wineries, your taste buds have plenty to be excited about. The rural New Zealand countryside, with its sheep, cattle, and deer, will take you and your taste buds to an unforgettable paradise. Obtain informative insight from some of the region's wine experts, many of whom are entertainers in their own right.

Enjoy lunch at Poppies Winery, famous for platters of fresh local produce paired with a complimentary glass of wine. Continue wine-tasting after lunch, deciding on your own if you'd like to stop instead at a local coffee shop. You will be returned to port after the tour's completion.

Book this Wellington shore excursion today for a memorable, comprehensive introduction to some of New Zealand's best wineries.

Excursion felt very personalized. It was just my wife and I. We were able to choose our wineries ( within reason). Great views on the way and our guide was very personable. The day really felt special!

Excellent Day of Wine Tasting

We were surprised to find that the tour was entirely private -- just for the two of us. Despite a dreary, rainy day, we had a wonderful tour! Had the weather been clear, I'm sure we would have witnessed beautiful views as we crossed over the mountains; unfortunately, the fog and mist on the day of our tour precluded this. Our driver tried to take us on a quick side trip to see one of the sites from Lord of the Rings; however, the road happened to be closed off that day for some reason. We had a very friendly and knowledgeable driver that took us to five different wineries as well as for coffee following the wine tastings. Can't say enough about the lunch platter at Poppie's. We had a table reserved for us right by the window overlooking the vineyards and had the opportunity to speak with one of the co-owners. The lunch platter included a nice variety of fresh and tasty items that complemented the wine. All in all, it was a fantastic way to spend a rainy day in port.
