The Wairarapa is a region of big skies, wide valleys and characterful small towns. The Wairarapa valley is fringed by mountains to the west and rugged coast to the east.

Wairarapa sits at the heart of the Classic New Zealand Wine Trail offering landscape that is wild and diverse. Martinborough Wine Village is packed with charm and is home to 20, largely family owned, wineries. The unique part is they are mostly all within walking or cycling distance of each other. 

Neighbouring Greytown  is a country village with metropolitan style, beautifully preserved Victorian wooden buildings house design and gift shops, an artisan French bakery and Schoc Chocolates, a gourmet chocolate studio serving up some sensational flavours including lime chilli and sea salt.
