Had such a great day visiting three winery’s with our tour guide Tom! All of the winery’s had amazing wines to offer, the weather was so sunny and warm felt like a real summers day.
We had a group of four of us staying in Wellington city & were picked up from the isite which was only a two minute walk from our accommodation, on the drive over we stopped at a couple of lookouts and a local cheese shop, our tour guide knew a lot about the area and could answer any questions we asked, he was really friendly and super easy to talk to. We highly enjoyed this day trip and would happily do it again and recommend to anyone else that may be thinking of doing it.

We did this tour on our long weekend trip to Wellington and found it an excellent way to spend a leisurely Sunday afternoon.

The tour guide Phil was excellent, he emailed shortly after booking to confirm pickup details and messaged us when he arrived at our hotel, right on time. Tour groups are intentionally small, there were 7 in our group which was the perfect size.

Phil was extremely knowledgeable about the region and provided excellent commentary on the picturesque drive. The stop at the summit of the Remutaka Ranges was great and provided an excellent opportunity for taking photos.

In Martinborough we stopped at three wineries; Poppies, Moy Hall and Te Kairanga. Each stop was great and offered a different selection of wines (and at the last stop, a gin!) to try. We were fortunate to have a nice warm day and got to spend lots of time enjoying the sun. Although lunch isn't included in the tour there is the opportunity to order food at one of the wineries, the stops are certainly long enough to allow sufficient time for a meal. I think it works better this way, as those who might have a big breakfast before the tour can have something light, whilst others can go for something more substantial.

Phil was happy to customise the tour and by popular vote of the group we switched our stop at C'Est Cheese for the Wine Bank in Martinborough town centre instead, for one last glass of wine before making our way back to Wellington.

The tour began at 10am and we were back at our hotel by around 3:30pm. Although there are other tours which go for longer I think that the length of this tour is pretty good as is. We didn't feel rushed at any of the stops, there was plenty of time for tasting and purchasing (for those who wanted to) and it meant we got back to Wellington at a reasonable enough time to go for a leisurely walk around town before having dinner.

I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone looking for a fun afternoon of sightseeing, wine tasting and good company. Thank you Phil and Zozo Travel!

Get out of Wellington city and explore quaint old towns with glorious wineries over the Remutakas
We’d highly recommend tripping over the Remutakas with Phil. A local who is passionate and knowledgeable - by the time we got dropped off it felt we’d known Phil for ages.
C’est Cheese for some goodies to take back to our hotel, beautiful wine from Poppies, Mot Hall, Te Kairanga wineries I really wished we had gone with a full day.

Phil picked us up on time. As he drove through Wellington heading up to Martinborough he gave a very knowledgeable commentary. Stopping off at the cheese shop hit the spot as we got a baguette, cheese and some cured meat to eat while we were driving at our own cost. There was a fare on the day we went so in and around the township was busy but didn't affect our tour. Phil was very helpful with everyone on the tour and knowledgeable about the wines on show. I would highly recommend this tour. Thank you Phil for a great day out.

Loved the tour completely! Phil did a great job with both sharing his knowledge in winemaking, New Zealand and Martinborough specifically, but also gave a nice historic tour with some interesting details of the places we passed by. Three wineries are perfect to both have an idea of the wines but still stay sober enough to appreciate the tasting :) The timing was also perfect - half-day, as promised. Highly recommend!

What a great day. Small group tour which allowed us to get a taste of what Martinborough had to offer. Our guide Phil was extremely knowledgeable not only about the wines but the region as a whole. We visited three wineries on our trip. A great mix of small, local wineries as well as a more commercial one. The owner of Muirlea Rise is an absolute gem of the area, his passion shining through. The short stop at the cheese shop was nice but it would have been better if we did a little tasting as well. If I had to list a downside it would be that at times it felt a bit rushed but then again it's just an introduction.

Thanks for your feedback and suggestions. Great to hear you enjoyed the tour! For those looking for a sample of the cheese we offer a Martinborough Foodie Half Day Tour which includes cheese, chocolate and a winery visit. Alternatively there is our full day Martinborough Winery and Foodie Tour that includes comprehensive stops at each of our foodie partner locations and is a longer but more leisurely tour option.

Our guide, Mel, was very informative, did a great job, and was compassionate towards my stepmother who had a lot of mobility issues. The wineries were lovely, especially the last 2 which weren’t as crowded and allowed for more time to taste each wine. The food we got at the last place, and eating it in the beautiful setting, was primo. The only bad point was the transport in which my dad, stepmother, and I we were wedged into the back of the 9 person van. No one more than 5 1/2 feet tall should/could sit back there and no one who is at all claustrophobic. I did ok (but it was still unpleasant) but my elderly parents really had a hard time.

Thanks for the review and I have passed on your positive feedback to your driver guide Mel. I appreciate that those with mobility issues may have trouble accessing the rear seats of our 9 seater vans and have instructed our driver guides to make sure they can use the more accessible seats in the front rows in future. It may also help to let operators know in advance if you do have any mobility issues so we can make more suitable vans available if possible.

Fantastic day! Our guide Phil was attentive and knowledgeable both about the wineries and about this area of the country. 3 wineries gave us plenty to taste, but no so many that the wine started to blend together out of drunkenness. Any more and it might be too much. We booked this tour because it offered pick up and drop off from Wellington, and we were able to fully enjoy the wine and the scenery since all the logistics were taken care of!

We had such a great day with Philip on the half day wine tour, would highly recommend it! He was very knowledgeable about both the region and NZ wine. He made sure we had a lovely time by taking us to all the best spots, including Moy Hall where we had a beautiful lunch. And then to some smaller boutique wineries which were great to discover, and we discovered some new favourite wines! We also had a great group of ladies on the tour who were fun to meet and spend the day with. Great way to spend the day and get a quick taste of the beautiful Martinborough region. Thanks Philip.
