Martinborough Wine Tours

Martinborough in a Day

Martinborough in a Day is a chauffeur-driven one-day experience of everything Martinborough, the Southern hemisphere’s only true wine village.

This unique and exclusive wine tour takes you behind the scenes, often where the general public can't access. Your friendly, knowledgeable wine tour host, will ensure your day is pleasurable and enlightening.

You will have the opportunity to taste regional cuisine and sample wines, meet local winemakers and growers and experience the culture of Martinborough including a visit to an olive oil producer.

Tours usually start at 10.30am and finish at 4.30pm. We are flexible if we need to fit in with railway schedules. Martinborough is 80 kms from Wellington. If you are traveling from Wellington we suggest you take the morning "Masterton" train from Wellington to Featherston. We pick you up at Featherston Railway Station and have you back there at the end of the tour for the return journey.

PLEASE NOTE that at the moment the midweek daytime services, and occasionally the weekend services, are being replaced by buses while track maintenance takes place:
