Martinborough is the wine capital of the sunny Wairarapa, located an hour over the Rimutaka Range from Wellington, New Zealand's capital city. We travel regularly into Wellington so can pick up or drop off there if required.

We're a friendly couple operating a small vineyard on Martinborough's 'golden mile'. This area has been compared to the famous Burgundy region in France with its intensive vineyards & super-premium wines, has a very similar climate, plus a passion for quality winemaking that oozes through the entire community. Martinborough is renowned for its wine and food events, drawing big Wellington crowds.

St Martin Vineyard comprises 17 year old Chardonnay vines that need regular care and attention. In addition to general vineyard maintenance, there's always something to do. From leaf plucking and shoot thinning during flowering, to summer maintenance, autumn picking and winery work through to winter pruning. Away from the vines, there's gardening, cleaning and loads of odd jobs that we never find enough time to complete!

Accommodation is on the vineyard, close to the Huangarua River for summer swims. We're only a short walk or bicycle ride into the Martinborough Town Square.

We have a 3 year old black labrador dog.
Non-smokers only please.
