Wine from Martinborough

Wine from Martinborough

Martinborough is not only a small town, but also a well-known wine region within the Wairarapa region. This picturesque colonial village is surrounded by small vineyards, tended by family-owned producers.

With a climate and soil profile similar to that of Burgundy, it’s no wonder that Martinborough has excited the wine world. It became famous for its flagship red Pinot Noir that rivals French burgundy wines.

Sauvignon Blanc is Martinborough’s best-kept secret. The Chardonnay wines are some of New Zealand's best. Syrah is emerging and showing great promise. Shop Martinborough wines online today.

About Martinborough

Martinborough is a small rural village located near the bottom of the North Island. It an hour’s drive from Wellington across the Remutaka mountain range. Martinborough is one of the three main sub-regions of the larger Wairarapa region.

The Martinborough terroir

The valley is protected from rain by mountains on three sides. Harvest days are warm, yet nights are cool year round due to direct exposure to the southern ocean.

These factors contribute significantly to the consistency of quality, both by preserving fruit intensity and facilitating a long, slow, steady ripening through the autumn.

The stony river terrace on which most of the vines are planted is made up of very shallow silt-loam on top of 25-metre-deep alluvial gravels. The stones are mostly quartz-threaded greywacke and to a lesser extent volcanic basalts.

This very free-draining profile, combined with the windiest and driest climate in the North Island – around 700mm rainfall a year – means humidity and therefore disease risk is low.

Spring is typically cool and windy, often resulting in imperfect flowering which keeps yields naturally in check, at a much lower average tonnage per acre than the rest of the country.
