Leaving Woodville we curve to the right taking us to Pahiatua and past the Fonterra Dairy factory and on to the Pahiatua railway station. We travel on to Eketahuna and into northern Wairarapa, running through Mauriceville and entering the Wairarapa wine country.

Arriving at the Masterton railway station you will be bused to the fabulous Copthorne Hotel where the dining room awaits, festooned with Christmas decorations, Christmas trees and Christmas music. You will almost be looking for Santa himself!

From the time of your arrival, you will be able to take advantage of the comprehensive bar or indulge in wine tastings available at the stands of several winemakers who will show you what winemaking is all about.
