More than just a wine tour!
Nov 2021 • Couples
This wasn't just a wine tour, it's far more. Phil's commentary from the time you get in the van till you get off is great. His knowledge of the area from Wellington to Martinborough is fantastic. He has a great relationship with the wineries. All this combined makes an excellent tour. Would be very keen to do one of his other tours.

The best day ever!
Wow! What an amazing day. The weather was unreal. Steve, our driver for the day, picked us up from our accommodation in Cuba Street and took us to Martinborough. The car was so comfortable and we enjoyed the ride and the chat immensely. The drive was great over to martinborough and Steve was very informative. We throughly enjoyed all the wineries and each one we were treated like old friends. So many great wines and lots of laughs which was fabulous. We ate pizza at Colombo for our lunch and it was delicious. Poppy at Poppies was so much fun and we all loved her, the wine was amazing too! Miles our server at Moy Hall had us in hysterics, so much fun! So many great memories made and we will most definitely be back. We are planning the all day trip next time as it was just such an incredible day. Thanks again Steve for putting up with us all day.

Great day out

Was a great day out. We got to choose what winery’s we went to and and could even choose to swap one out for a brewery. Phil was a helpful and knowledgeable tour guide. Highly recommend this tour.

A brilliant day out.
Oct 2021
A lovely, relaxing drive out of Wellington over the amazing Re(i)mukata Range where the views are mighty. We'd left an overcast Wellington and drove into a warm, sunshine'y day in Martinborough. Philip is very knowledgeable about the area as well as the wineries and their wines - and what makes them so special. We visited 3 wineries and the famous C'est Cheese shop in Featherston on the way home. I tasted some beautiful wines, bought too much back with me and am now devouring way too much cheese! Highly recommend this tour.

Awesome way to spend the day
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.

Perfect day out - a must do on any trip to Wellington!
Jun 2021
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!

A Unique Experience
May 2021
Me and my partner experienced our first wine tasting tour - we absolutely loved it. Phil makes for an entertaining tour guide. The scenery was perfect. We enjoyed many types of wine we didn't know we liked. It was also very educational. All in all, a great tour i recommend everyone does. It isn't too long or too short either.
