The Greater Wellington BreWDay, held in Martinborough, was a wonderful combination good food, music and a jovial crowd of all ages, enjoying some fine craft brews in a rural setting.
Close to the heart of Martinborough – more known for its wines and olive groves – locals and visitors (mostly from the Hutt and Wellington) gathered in a field (sheltered from the wind by a number of sheep trucks) and sampled the delights on offer.
We found some hay bales to sit on whilst enjoying scrumptious dumplings.
And later on the girls decided to climb atop hay bales of a different scale!
Being a family friendly crowd (folks were drinking sensibly – at least for the first few hours, that we spent there) the children had fun cartwheeling between the hay bales and dancing to the bands.
There was a neat corn hole game at the Garage Project stand, that was entertaining for the children – and the adults (hubby managed to get a few corn sacks through the hole without spilling a drop of his golden juice!).

We enjoyed a great couple of hours (that was enough for me!). Hubby went back for a couple more later in the afternoon, with our headstand loving daughter! From our house we could hear the ‘Noodles’ playing and the atmosphere was really pumping.
As the sun set, at the end of a wonderful Saturday, we took a final stroll with the dog around the vineyards, and stopped to take a photograph of the sun setting over the fields, as the brewers packed up after a successful day.
