The Wairarapa is located at the lower right-hand corner of New Zealandʼs North Island, approximately an hour north-east of Wellington. The winemaking area is divided into three main sub-regions: Masterton to the north, Gladstone in the middle and Martinborough to the south. The distance from Masterton to Martinborough it is about 35km. Pinot Noir is the region's most planted and certainly most acclaimed grape variety.

Climatically Wairarapa is more aligned to Marlborough than to any of the North Island regions. The success and style of its Sauvignon Blanc is evidence of this alliance. Officially New Zealand's sixth largest region, Wellington is small in production terms but makes a large contribution to the country's quality winemaking reputation.
Main city - Wellington;
