Food & Wine Great Escape
Have a Wairarapa getaway with a trip full of indulgence.
Leave your bubble behind and head over to Martinborough. Spend two nights at Peppers Parehua in one of their secluded cottages. A perfect location with its own outdoor hot tub and indoor open fire. And only a 10-minute stroll to Martinborough – the heart of food & wine country.
Wake up on your first morning in Martinborough to enjoy a leisurely breakfast before cycling the vineyards with Green Jersey Explorer tours. A bit of exercise but not too much, these are electric assist bikes and their yours for the 2 days. It’s the perfect way to work up an appetite and a lunch at Poppies is a superb way to take care of it.
The afternoon is yours to enjoy in the region’s favourite wine country.
When you wake in the morning your Great Wairarapa Escape isn’t over. Before you leave make sure you grab a bottle of Lighthouse Gin, handcrafted right in Martinborough. Maybe save that for later, though, because you have a lunch reservation at Luna Estate to enjoy with a bottle of Estate wine. A delicious last meal in an indulgent Great Escape.
