A world search, which also included France, Germany, North and South America as well as Australia for the ideal area with perfect conditions for viticulture, especially for Pinot Noir, brought Kai Schubert and Marion Deimling, graduates of the German Viticulture and Oenology University in Geisenheim to the Wairarapa, New Zealand. Schubert vineyards are closely planted and the unique climate produces low yields and internationally award winning wines with intense and complex character; predominantly exported to currently 25 countries.

This is a lovely boutique winery and the wines were nice but the whole tasting experience could be improved by creating a much more comfortable and welcoming tasting room. What they currently have is a bit bleak to be honest and visually unappealing. The hostess was friendly, welcoming and knowledgable.

Dear kristabel2016, Thank you for your comments. I hope you enjoyed the presentation and tasting of our wines even so you disliked the appearance of our tasting room. Indeed it is a very simple building. Our main focus is the quality of our wines hence we prefer simplicity in our tasting room, so no other stuff or nick-nacks for sale... More

This cute little wine shop imports and sells the most wonderful wine glasses that are the best wine glasses I've used. The wine is very good and the wine tasting staff knowledgeable and interesting.

This was the third stop on our wine tour and it was hands down everyone's favorite vineyard of the day. Robert was serving us that day and he was incredibly knowledgeable and did a wonderful tasting, particularly as there was a close to closing crush of people. Would definitely recommend putting this on your list of vineyards to visit while... More

If you are looking for excellent wines and an intimate venue you can't go past Schubert Wines at 57 Cambridge Road in Martinborough. The very charming and knowledgeable Italian born hostess, Martina, describes each wine eloquently. On tasting today were a couple of whites, a delicious pinot, a syrah and a dessert wine. The pinot was the pick of the... More

Stopping here for a wine tasting is like visiting family with really good taste in wine. The lady here was warm and friendly, provided us with an up to date list of which wineries were actually open on a Wednesday, and was knowledgeable about her industry. The wine was divine.
