Construction begins on Martinborough’s new wine and gin destination

Construction has begun on Martinborough’s new wine and gin destination, the Old Winery.

Expected to be completed in 2021, the Old Winery – owned by Foley Wines – will feature a restaurant, tasting room, gin distillery, private dining, terrace and underground barrel hall across 1800 sqm.

Sitting on the edge of the Martinborough Terrace, the Old Winery will be the new home of Foley Wines’ local brands – Martinborough Vineyard, Te Kairanga and Lighthouse Gin.

The venue will be a first of its kind for Martinborough, allowing visitors to experience some of the region’s best-crafted wines and gin under the one roof. 

“Beautiful, bikeable and just over the hill from Wellington, Martinborough is being discovered by more and more New Zealanders. It’s becoming a must-visit destination for all wine and food lovers,” says Yvette Holden, Brand Manager at Foley Wines.

Visitors to the Old Winery will be able to experience all three brands, plus Lighthouse Distiller, Rachel Hall, at work in her custom-built distillery.
