One of the minor frustrations of travelling to new places is having to miss out on some things or places that interest you because you can’t be in two places at once. Well, when you visit Hawke’s Bay we have the answer to this dilemma, at least for dinner.
Imagine dining at three of the Hawke’s Bay’s top wineries on the same night. Yes, that’s right, the chance to enjoy the cuisine of three top destinations in the same evening… And someone else will drive you to each!

Then we head to the summit of Te Mata Peak to enjoy 360-degree evening views across Hawke’s Bay.
