Welcome to our haven. Just five minutes walk from the cafes and restaurants in Martinborough’s Memorial Square but surrounded by vines, this is a quintessential Martinborough retreat.
Our home is a recently renovated, converted wine shed that has been tastefully decorated and beautifully furnished. Outside is a working vineyard, first planted in the late 1980s and still producing top-class Cabernet. Bike to the wineries on our vintage-style bikes or wander into town for superb coffee, restaurants, and local shops. Relax, indulge, enjoy.
The living, dining and kitchen area is huge: it’s perfect for bringing the family together for a meal; or curling up in front of the wood burner with a glass of wine.
Two generous double bedrooms (one en-suite) are furnished with comfortable Queen sized Ecosa mattresses and 300 thread count sheets. A mezzanine level with sofabed provides a flexible space, usable as a kidzone and second TV area, or for a third Queen sized bed. Outside, sit and have your coffee on the terrace in the morning sun, fire up the Weber barbecue for an alfresco meal, or have sundowners in the vines as the sun sets.
Martinborough needs no introduction. Colonial charm meets hipster cafes meets top class restaurants and some of the best wines in the world. Fancy a Pinot Noir? Ata Rangi is nearby. Prefer a natural wine? Just cross the road to let Lance Redgwell pour you some of New Zealand’s best at Cambridge Road. Then have dinner at one of the many fabulous restaurants on offer less than 5 minutes walk away. If you fancy a drive, go south to the coast: go fishing or walking where Lake Ferry meets the sea, or visit the gorgeous village of Ngawi. Drive north, go shopping in Greytown, swimming in the Ruamahanga, take in some art at Aratoi in Masterton or try your hand at mini-golf.
The Wine Shed is bliss. Take a weekend. Or a whole week. You won’t regret it.
