A Toast to Martinborough and the Wairarapa by Dave Cull

In boisterous, entertaining prose author Dave Cull traces how 'Wellington's back garden' was re-established as the country's premier grape-producing region. He roams vineyards, tucks in at tables and pokes around the wine-presses of the Martinborough Terrace and environs. He introduces the characters making some of this country's finest vintages, extracting from them their particular fascinations and the nuances of their vineyards' climates, soil types and the science and philosophies behind the wines. 

Published in 2003, this book is a snapshot of Martinborough and the characters that started it all.
