Wairarapa (meaning glistening waters in Maori) is a compact yet diverse region, with numerous boutique producers offering a range varieties and producing wine of exceptional quality.

A boutique region, Wairapara has just 3% of New Zealand’s land under vine, and contributes to 1% of its total production.

A range of styles and varieties are on offer, such as standout Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and aromatics, as well as stylish Chardonnay, Syrah and dessert wines.

The three main sub-regions in the area are Martinborough, Gladstone and Masterton. These sub-regions share a similar climate and soil structures, yet offer subtle differences in character for the discerning palate to explore.

Wairarapa’s modern wine history dates from the late 1970s plantings of Martinborough, which included producers such as: Dry River, Martinborough Vineyard, Ata Rangi and Chifney (now Margrain).
