UPCOMING WALKS

From October 2017, we offer three walks, each at varying levels of fitness:

 

The Terrace Walk

Step into New Zealand winemaking history with this overview of the now globally famed, Martinborough River Terraces. This central walk encompasses the first of Martinborough’s wine producers, along with rising stars and the new wave of wine makers making their mark. Including a walk along the Huangarua River bank itself, be immersed in the history of this world-famed wine region. Winery visits include:

  • Devotus
  • Dry River
  • Cambridge Road (lunch)
  • Schubert
  • Nga Waka

 

The Te Muna Walk

Martinborough’s hidden valley is the humble home of some of the most prestigious names in New Zealand wine. An extension of the Martinborough Terrace, this valley has been carved out by the Huangarua river some 20,000 years ago. Since the late 1980’s and with iconic producers including Craggy Range and Escarpment, it is the area quietly making a global impact. This vigorous trek begins ‘over-the-hill’ on the Rapaki Track, so is designed for fitter walkers that enjoy a bit of physical yin to accompany their wine-imbibing yang. Winery Visits include:

  • Redbank Estate
  • Escarpment
  • Julicher Estate
  • Big Sky Wines or Te Hera Estate

 

The Martinborough Mini-Walk

For those wanting a more relaxed stroll around the vineyards that make up New Zealand’s only Wine Village, the Martinborough Mini Walk makes the most of a close-knit community, visiting producers literally a hop, skip and a jump from each other. Not just focusing on wine, this walk encompasses some of our region's other delights, such as craft spirits and beers.

Vineyards include:

  • Ata Rangi
  • Margrain
  • Martinborough Vineyards
  • Nga Waka
  • Martinborough Brewery
