Martinborough

Martinborough is a unique wine village, popular as a weekend lazy and indulgent retreat for Wellingtonians, with around 30 boutique vineyards, most within walking distance of the charming town square. Martinborough was named after John Martin (1822-92), an Irish immigrant who purchased the large Wairarapa sheep station "Huangarua" in 1879.

John created a town just north of the existing settlement giving it street names such as 'Venice', 'Panama', 'Suez' and 'New York' and creating a central square and streets laid out in a Union Jack pattern, all inspired from a world tour he took
