Te Kairanga Cellar Door opens for wine tastings and more from Queens Birthday Weekend

Te Kairanga is welcoming visitors back to its beautiful pocket of Martinborough as it opens its Cellar Door this Queens Birthday Weekend. It will be open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays thereafter with a calendar of local culinary delights and special wines to make the most of winter weekends.

The Te Kairanga Cellar Door is home to two of Martinborough’s pioneering wineries; Te Kairanga and Martinborough Vineyard, as well as local favourite Lighthouse Gin. It is housed in the 130-year old cottage formerly owned by Martinborough namesake, John Martin, and is surrounded by a shaded garden perfect for sipping a glass of Martinborough’s finest.

This Friday 29th May from 11am – 4pm, cellar door tastings will resume under the oak trees with seated table service. New special tasting flights will be on offer along with Lighthouse Gin & Tonics.

This Saturday 30th May, Wellington’s famous Montfoort food truck ‘Cibby’ will be popping up in the Te Kairanga cottage garden to serve their decadent Dutch treats. Favourites from poffertjes to stroopwafels and apple pies will be available all day to accompany your tasting flight or Lighthouse Gin & Tonic.

This Sunday 31st May visitors can enjoy the first edition of ‘Vintage Sunday’ at Te Kairanga. Revelers will be able to try a taste or a glass of special, rare and aged wines selected by the winemakers from the Martinborough Vineyard and Te Kairanga winery cellars as an ongoing celebration of the pioneering history of these two iconic wineries.

Queen’s Birthday on Monday 1st June will be a day for relaxing on the verandah with a glass of wine. On offer all weekend will be the TK Larder – a selection of local artisan goods to pair with your wine, mixed cases of wine to take home, plenty of fresh air, great yarns and of course their award-winning wines.

On Saturday 20th June visitors will be treated to a winter solstice lunch as Wharekauhau Country Estate takes up residence in the cottage garden. The luxury lodge’s chef will be serving up warming winter dishes, perfectly matching local produce with local wines.

Plus, every case of wine purchased during the month of June from the cellar door goes into the draw to win lunch for two at the luxurious Wharekauhau Country Estate at Palliser Bay.

Bookings are now open and are highly recommended. Tasting tables can be booked for groups of up to ten people. Contact to reserve your place under the oaks.
