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'.
Take the opportunity to combine the best of Hawke’s Bay’s scenic beauty with a taste of its famous wine country and top it off with a delicious lunch at one of the region’s finest winery restaurants.
For this morning adventure, we’ll collect you from your accommodation and head towards Te Mata Peak sitting above the village of Havelock North. The summit provides stunning 360-degree views across Hawke’s Bay and in the morning, with the sun behind us, we can usually see all the way west to Mt Ruapehu, the North Island’s highest mountain.
From the Peak, we head to the first of 2 premium wineries where you’ll taste some of Hawke’s Bay’s finest wines. Between wineries, we’ll take you across the fertile Heretaunga Plain, the district known around the country as ‘The Fruit Bowl of New Zealand’. Picturesque orchard, vineyard and rolling farm country will be our backdrop before we arrive for lunch at one of the region’s finest winery restaurants.
After a delicious lunch, we’ll return you either to your accommodation or any alternative drop-off point you’d like. What a delightful way to spend a morning!
