WELCOME TO MARTINBOROUGH

New Zealand’s only wine village, where you can walk between the vineyards

Walk, talk and taste your way between the scenes with our passionate and knowledgeable local guides.

Go off the beaten track, walk the vineyards and enjoy wines from a hand-picked selection of Martinborough’s specialist winemakers and beverage producers.

Martinborough Wine Walks are wine tasting experiences like no other! Set in the heart of  New Zealand’s only Wine Village – where walking between the vineyards is truly possible.

With your experienced local guide, go behind the scenes to meet winemakers and viticulturists, hear their stories, and enjoy wine with the people who make them.

Hosted by a small team of passionate locals who eat, drink and sleep wine – you are in for an entertaining, relaxed and informative day out.
Tours will sometimes include local craft beer and spirit producers too.

Group sizes usually remain small (up to 12 people) to ensure a personal experience. 
Set departures on Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. We require a minimum of 4 persons for a tour to operate. 


 
“Your walking wine tour has been much talked about, going through back yards, over fences, meeting passionate wine makers who are full of pride for their wines, it really did give us an experience of a life time.  Plus your obvious knowledge, relationships with the growers and what a lovely guide you were, very friendly and we felt very much at ease with you” ~ Steve and Diane
