Indagare's Simone Girner
"Vintners have been cultivating in Martinborough since the late 1970s, but the region has only recently emerged from the shadow of New Zealand’s more famous wine-making areas, with its Pinot Noirs leading the way. Some of my favorite wineries were: Schubert, Ata Rangi and Martinborough Vineyard."
