Great wine and food
Robert_D, Mar 2023
Scott, our driver was very informative. He brought us to three different wineries. Our favorite was poppies. We had a great lunch there. And the three little boutique wineries have great tasting and refreshing wines. Martinborough is a very cute little town.

Well-designed, insightful tour
Beth_B, Jul 2019
Philip put together a terrific tour for us. The three wineries we visited each had a different atmosphere, which was fun, and all had very good wines. The photo stops along the way from Wellington were gorgeous, and the cheese stop was very tasty. Philip knows a lot about the Martinborough region and was very receptive to our questions both ahead of (via email) and during the tour. He looked after us very well. Highly recommended!

Thanks for the positive review and glad to hear you enjoyed the tour. It was my pleasure to host you!
