Unique Wine Village

Small in size but big in style, Martinborough Wine Village is the region’s major wine visitor destination.

It’s unique in New Zealand, reminiscent of enchanting French wine villages. Martinborough’s flat landscape, clustered vineyards, charming town square, Victorian buildings with boutique stores, excellent coffee and tasty food mean visitors can walk or cycle around easily to visit vineyards and taste wine, or simply relax and enjoy the relaxed country village ambience.

Accommodation ranging from a luxury lodge and boutique hotels to independent self-catering houses and Holiday Parks is available. Visit Destination Wairarapa for further details.

Centrally located in the Martinborough Village are two fabulous wine tasting options

Martinborough Wine Merchants, centrally located in the village, is unique in featuring all the region’s wines, available for purchase, and where regular free tastings are held with wine-makers.

The Wine Bank, located on the Northern side of Memorial Square is a unique self-service wine experience with 60+ local and NZ wines always available for tasting and bottle sales.
