Martinborough is a town located in the Wairarapa District. Packed with colonial charm, Martinborough features over 20 wineries, most within walking distance of the quaint village square which is laid out in a Union Jack pattern. Some of New Zealand’s best pinot noir comes from the town’s friendly family-owned vineyards. With the small vineyards being so close to each other cycling-the-vines is a very popular thing to do in the town: this and the colonial style of the village make Martinborough special for wine tourists.
