Girls - come on! There's so much to do here in the Wairarapa, all close together and with lots of choice too. Pack your bags!
Here are some ideas to get you thinking:
- Shop till you drop in gorgeous Greytown - retail therapy is brilliant here at the small distinctive stores. Not a big box mall in sight.
- Is there a flavour at Schoc Chocolates you haven't tried? Then get there immediately! Check out the chocolate shoes for the girl with everything!
- Shopping can be tiring- refuel at the many cafes and restaurants in Greytown
We feel the need to go to Martinborough! You should too:
- Head to the Martinborough i-SITE in The Square and grab a wine map.
- Hire a bike and cycle the vines - cellar doors are so close together you'll get to taste and learn more about our wines easily.
- Relax over a long lunch at a vineyard or at one of the other tempting spots around Martinborough.
- Visit Olivo and try their delicious infused olive oils.
- A cleansing ale can hit the spot - head to Martinborough Brewery.
- Celebrate at the Union Square with a glass of bubbles.
