Stories from the Vineyards - A Toast to Martinborough and the Wairarapa
by Dave Cull

This is the story of the Wairarapa's fruitful vineyard region. Well-known television presenter Dave Cull takes the reader on a journey from vineyard to vineyard collecting stories from the people who make it all happen; the growers, the winemakers - the very people who turn grapes into world-class wine. Dave Cull covers the early history of the area, the ferment of vineyard expansion in the early 80s, through to the Garden of Eden it is today. In boisterous, entertaining prose author Dave Cull traces how 'Wellington's back garden' was re-established as the country's premier grape-producing region. He roams vineyards, tucks in at tables and pokes around the wine-presses of the Martinborough Terrace and environs. He introduces the characters making some of this country's finest vintages, extracting from them their particular fascinations and the nuances of their vineyards' climates, soil-types and the science and philosophies behind the wines. A mesmerising passion is revealed in the people who meld art, science and hedonism in their attempts to achieve the transcendent wine experience. Readers will find themselves making lists of the wines they realise they'd be fools not to try at least once before they die. Beautifully illustrated with stunning photographs, 'A Toast to Martinborough' and the Wairarapa is a long-awaited tribute to a distinctive region rich with character - in the people, the climate and the wine.
