Kiwi local food

Cheese platter is amazing, from local cheese maker and local store. Taste difference flavours of chocolate that unique and you never taste before. Than, we went to Poppies for wine tasting which only available at door cellar. The final, we can explore Martinborough in your own time or grab some lunch. We also learn the history of the area.

Thanks for the review Kay. Glad you enjoyed the tour and little taster of Martinborough and the surrounds. Unfortunately our Martinborough Winery and Foodie Tour which is the full day version isn't available on BookMe.

Martinborough half day foodie tour

We throughly enjoyed our day out with Phil. He was a good host. We were on the tour with another couple who were doing the wine tour. Phil combined the two nice. Shared cheese board. Wine tastings and chocolate tasting. Very relaxing way to spend the day and visit some boutique wineries in the martinborough area. Pickup from the hotel was good for us and the delivery back there,comfortable vehicle. The day went quickly! Highly recommended by us.

Lovely Day Out

Very nice day out to enjoy some food & wine with various stops on the way. The Olivo (olive oil tasting) is well worth a stop. We found this trip great for the time it was without an early start or late finish. We will definitely do more tours with this company.
