Enjoy a scenic drive over the Remutaka Ranges including a short stop at the summit before descending into the stunning Wairarapa region.

The first tasting stop is at C'est Cheese in Featherston for a range of fantastic local and imported cheeses and gourmet foods. Next, we explore the heart of Martinborough – winemaking. Visit some of the oldest vines in the region and explore the first winery in Martinborough, The Vineyard Cafe. You'll get to see the winemaking process, all while tasting Margrain's fine wines.

Lunch (mains and a drink) will be served at The Vineyard Cafe overlooking the spectacular countryside of the Martinborough wine growing region. Throughout the season we also partner with other winery and lunch providers as availability dictates.

Third stop is a craft beer tasting paddle at Martinborough Brewery. These paddles consist of your choice of any 4 of the 8 tap beers. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays, craft beer tasting occurs just around the corner at the historic Martinborough Hotel.

Our next tasting stop allows you to wander amongst the oldest olive trees in Martinborough, learning about the different olive varieties and what happens throughout the olive tree's year. In the tasting room, you'll learn how to taste olive oil like a pro, and how to use extra virgin olive oil and the full range of infused oils in quick, easy and spectacular recipes.

Our final tasting experience takes in the amazing products at Schoc chocolates in Greytown where you can try some of their amazing new choc creations!
