Kitchener Street showcases Martinborough’s transformation from utilitarian country town to urbane wine village.

Cafés, restaurants, food stores and boutique hotels cater for visitors and weekend holidaymakers. Historic buildings have been gentrified and convey a sense of tradition and durability – important qualities in winemaking.
