What to Expect
Make your way to the historic Wellington Railway Station, then board a train for the hour-long trip to Martinborough, passing Wellington Harbour and the beautiful Wairarapa Valley along the way. Step off the train at Featherston Railway Station, where a driver will greet you upon arrival. While exploring the Martinborough wine region, you’ll travel by climate-controlled coach, stopping at a series of four boutique and award-winning tasting rooms. When it’s time for lunch, sit down to a gourmet spread of antipasti, a local cheese platter, and coffee. If the schedule allows, you’ll have some time to explore craft shops and galleries in a rural wine town before the train leaves for Wellington.
