Wairarapa is a cool-climate wine region in the southernmost tip of North Island, New Zealand. Several rivers run through it, enriching its soils and providing excellent natural sources of irrigation. Long days of sun exposure with cool breezes contribute to a lengthy growing season and well-balanced, character-driven grapes. 
 
Pinot Noir is the prominent grape in this maritime climate, especially so in the famous subregion of Martinborough. Other varietals cultivated in Wairarapa are Chardonnay, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc.
