Martinborough, in addition to being a village, is also the oldest and best known wine area in the Wairarapa district, more specifically in the Wellington region (New Zealand). The most widely planted grape is Pinot Noir and certainly the most acclaimed in the region. The success that Martinborough's Pinot Noir have achieved today is thanks to this region flexibility and the capability of developing quickly as well as their outstanding quality in wines.
Considered as the sixth largest region of New Zealand, the capital of this country is Wellington, which is “small” when referring to production, however, that does not stop it to provide one of the best quality wines of the entire country. Wairapara has only 3% of New Zealand's land under grapevine, and 1% of its total production, yet it boasts some of New Zealand's most iconic and sought-after growers.
