Of all New Zealand's wine producing regions, there is no doubt that Hawke’s Bay has a greater capacity than any other to produce a wide range of classical varieties. Whether you’re a newcomer to wine, a lover of fresh and flavoursome white wines, or maybe a devotee of full-bodied red wines, we’ll help you discover that Hawke’s Bay produces some of the finest examples of both.
We invite you to let us show you around New Zealand’s original ‘Wine Country'.
Premium Afternoon Wine Tour Itinerary:
Sit back and relax on an afternoon of delectable discovery as our expert guides whisk you away into the picturesque Hawke’s Bay countryside to visit 3 or 4 premium wineries that contribute to the region’s worldwide reputation for fine wine.
Perhaps we’ll begin tasting at a winery in pretty Havelock North or maybe the Dartmoor or Esk Valleys.
Then we head for the famous vineyards of the Gimblett Gravels west of Hastings and your guide will take you into a working vineyard and explain why this area is so sought after for grape-growing.
The boutique winery visits continue together with a behind-the-scenes look at the winemaking process at one of the wineries.
At the third winery of the afternoon, the wine tasting is followed by time to graze on a delicious Gourmet Platter showcasing artisan food products from right here in Hawke’s Bay and other regions of New Zealand.
At the end of the tour, you’ll be returned having experienced the rich diversity of wine styles and met some of the characters that make up New Zealand’s oldest wine region. What better way to spend an afternoon in Hawke’s Bay?
