The Wine and Olive Oil of Martinborough

20 Jan 2011

“I would like to see more of New Zealand” I said.  So off we went in our car for a mini road trip of sorts to the Wairarapa region.  Only an hour or so away from Wellington our first stop was Martinborough, a town famous for it’s vineyards and wineries.  The climate and soils of Martinborough are well suited to producing excellent Pinot Noir.  And where great Pinot Noir is made, I learnt great olive oil is sure to follow.
