Hawkes Bay

"Hawke’s Bay’s temperate climate and plentiful sunshine make the region ideal for fruit-growing.

Grape vines were first planted in the Hawke's Bay in 1851 by Marist missionaries, their legacy is Taradale’s historic Mission Winery.

Hawke’s Bay has since earned itself an international reputation for producing high quality Cabernet & Merlot blends, Syrah, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and an impressive array of aromatic white wines. The warm climate and lengthy growing season also allow for the successful production of dessert wine styles.

A well-established wine tourism trail offers a wide variety of cellar door experiences, regular food and wine festivals, and showcases the region’s art deco architecture (in Napier city) and artisan producers. New Zealand’s second largest wine region, sunny Hawke’s Bay has been an abundant source of fine wine since 1851." - NZ Wine
