Someone once told me that if you don’t drink a bottle of wine a day, you were only cheating yourself. It made me smile at the time, but he may have been on target, especially if you like wine! In New Zealand you are able to enjoy some of the finest wines that are found nowhere else. Much of the wine in this small country is consumed within the country.
Does is sound like a trip to New Zealand is in your near future? Well if so, you will want to head to Martinborough, which will offers over 25 boutique wineries with premium quality wines. Only 65 kms from Wellington, this warm micro climate, produces a notable Pinot Noir. The town is small, but it is one of the finest wine growing areas in New Zealand. You should take a tour to meet the wine makers and visit the vineyards. Since the area has hills both to the east and west, the setting is picturesque and inviting, as are the friendly Kiwis who live there.
So, if you are truly a wine connoisseur, you need to look no further than the Pinot Noirs of Martinborough. The best time to enjoy the region’s wines is during November when they celebrate the Toast Martinborough wine festival. Want some help planning? Just give me a call!
