Martinborough, North Island, New Zealand: We arrived in Wellington to much warmer weather (please let this heat last), and immediately headed up to wine country. Situated in the Wairarapa Region, the 20+ wineries making up the Martinborough growing region are all very unique. We visited Poppies, a lovely boutique winery run by a husband & wife team. The next day we headed to Murdoch James for a vineyard & cellar tour and tasting out on the sunny terrace.
