Flat country roads make the perfect terrain for easy cycling in between vineyards – no lycra required!

Martinborough, the picturesque country village in the heart of the Wairarapa region is synonymous with wine – most notably its famous pinot noir. With more than 20 wineries, most within cycling distance of the Union Jack-shaped village square, it’s the ideal location for a wine tour by bike.

Pick up a wine map and sip and sup your way between cellar doors, sampling the region’s luscious tipples. 

Many Martinborough vineyards have onsite restaurants for a luxuriant lunch or a fortifying platter to keep you going. 

Meet the winemakers, learn about the local terroir, taste the wares and take a bottle or two home with you to savour later.
