Travels through Wellington Wine Country

Mar 24 8:34am Hawk Wakawaka Wine Reviews
Wellington Wine Country Larry McKenna speaking from the edge of his Escarpment Our tour through New Zealand wine countries finished with two days in Martinborough and its neighbor regions, all together known as Wairarapa, and now together reclassed as Wellington Wine Country. Wellington Wine Country sits about an hour and a half drive from the city itself. It’s one of the coldest growing regions in New Zealand with one of the longest growing seasons as well. As a result, it’s brilliant for producing truly cool climate varieties like Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with genuine concentration and density native to the fruit itself. Some of the founding prestige wineries of the country that first brought attention to the nation for producing high quality Pinot Noir originate here. The landscape through the region is incredible. At the same time, the townships hold a sort of country or frontier sort of feel that speaks to their remoteness, even if in proximity to the nation’s capitol. It’s a charming combination. Here’s a look in photos as shared to Instagram while we traveled. Big skies and wind in the Wairarapa region of Wellington Wine Country. Here in the Masterton subregion at the Matahiwi Estate. #nzwine @nzwinegrowers @nzwineusa @matahiwiestate A post shared by Hawk Wakawaka (@hawk\_wakawaka) on Feb 5, 2017 at 3:47pm PST What Brexit?! Delegates from the United Kingdom and Germany together and it feels so good. Gorgeous views at Urlar Estate in the Gladstone subregion of the Wairarapa in Wellington Wine Country. #nzwine @nzwinegrowers @nzwineusa from left: Adam Clarke and Peter Badenhop @clarkeadam75 A post shared by Hawk Wakawaka (@hawk\_wakawaka) on Feb 5, 2017 at 4:42pm PST Oh my Bella, I love you too. My new friend, the Kunekune pig at Gladstone Vineyard in the Gladstone subregion of Wairarapa in Wellington Wine Country. She’s full of advice on how to move to New Zealand and what it means to respect the land. Lovely girl. #nzwine @nzwinegrowers @nzwine @gladstonevineyard A post shared by Hawk Wakawaka (@hawk\_wakawaka) on Feb 5, 2017 at 6:42pm PST Well look at that!
