The Points Guy Wine Wednesday: Martinborough, New Zealand

For this week's Wine Wednesday post on The Points Guy, we headed back south of the equator to New Zealand - a country that produces a minuscule amount of the world's wine and yet has an outsize influence on the wine industry thanks to some stunning wines from its diverse regions.



Although most folks get Martinborough, which is on the southern end of the North Island, confused with the much more famous Marlborough (where most of the country's Sauvignon Blanc is made) on the South Island, this tiny wine region an hour from the capital of Wellington has some of the country's most lauded wineries thanks to spectacular Pinot Noirs and other varietals produced here.

Read about why you should take a day trip here on your next trip to New Zealand in my post on TPG from yesterday.
