Martinborough on New Zealand's North Island is one of the world's greatest wine growing regions, with over 40 wineries and many more vineyards growing grapes. Renowned for its pinot noir, Martinborough wineries have also received international awards for many of their other varieties. Located in the Wairarapa region and just over 75 minutes east of Wellington, the village of Martinborough is a unique wine village with 30 wineries within walking distance, a charming town square, numerous restaurants, cafes, galleries and heritage architecture. The close proximity of the region's attractions allow you to create your own Martinborough wine touring experience.

The history of winemaking in Martinborough goes back to 1978 when the first vineyard was planted but it wasn't until 1986 when Larry McKenna arrived from Delegatas in Auckland to take charge of the winemaking at Martinborough Vineyard that national and international accolades and recognition were achieved. Many of the wineries are open for tastings and sales throughout the year and several also have restaurant or cafe facilities serving exquisite food. If time does not allow for travelling to all the wineries, in the centre of town the Martinborough Wine Centre offers a wide range of the region's wines for you to sample all under one roof.

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Had a great stay here. Lovely room; very well furnished, and very comfortable. It was one of their 'secluded cottages', and was indeed very discretely placed in the grounds; very quiet too. We also had dinner that night; whilst there was some issue with the amount of time it took for the meal to arrive, this was well handled by the staff, and the food was very nice; especially the desserts. Breakfast in the morning also very good. Looking forward to another stay one day...

Review:   If you have an Entertainment Book you can get a great deal via the "Departure Lounge". We stayed in The Winemakers Cottage and it was gorgeous. The villa is very spacious and has everything you need for your stay. We will definitely be back.

Review:   Love this place! We got the secluded lodge with the hot tub and fire place and it was super romantic. And warm - the bathroom tiles were heated!

Review:   We pick up a lot of guests here (for our various Martinborough vineyard tours) and guests are always most complimentary about the venue and the helpful staff. In a beautiful garden setting and surrounded by vines, it is a lovely place to stay
