Sep up between rivers and hills, the terraced vineyards enjoy the best conditions to produce excellent wines. During tasting, you will have the choice between red wines from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah, offering a beautiful freshness and a surprising complexity and taste balanced white wines, rich and very powerful, mainly made with Chardonnay.


    Martinborrough:

    This small wine-growing region is also distinguished by a well-known grape variety: the Pinot Noir. Following the meanders of the Ruamahanga River you will reach the terraced vineyards of Martinborough (north of the country in the Wairarapa region).
    You will find mainly grape variety (pinot noir) dense and complex, with aromas of black fruits and animal notes.
    The white wines mainly from Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc has a minor place in Martinborough and are much less famous than the reds.

You have to go to the northeast of the southern island to discover these vineyards.Surrounded by Mount Richemond and the Kaikoura Mountains, these plains are divided into two valleys: Wairau and Awatere. In these two valleys the king grape variety is the white Sauvignon.
