Taste Your Way Through Hawke's Bay- Hunter Gatherer Hawke's Bay Tour

Taste your way through the stunning landscape of Hawke’s Bay with its beautifully preserved Art Deco buildings, rugged beaches, wetlands, rivers and glimpses of Cape Kidnappers.

The journey involves visiting two wineries chosen for their exceptional wines and location and maybe a cider maker. You can have an ice cream at legendary Rush Munroe, taste all things “fig” at The Figgery, olives and oil at Telegraph Hill, make a quick detour to a great bakery and maybe Juliet’s favourite pie shop – time permitting!

We will then have a quick forage in a wonderful farm shop before heading to Juliet’s home for an amazing lunch.
As well as the things you have gathered, the main feature of the lunch is local artisan cheese plus chutneys, seasonal fruit and vegetables and finish with a NZ classic – Anzac biscuits!   After lunch you visit another winery before being dropped at your hotel.

You can choose most of the above or simply choose to do a CHEESE TASTING with Juliet at her home including a delicious lunch or as a long leisurely dinner Whatever you choose the tours and tastings are designed to entertain, inspire and educate you and give you a unique insight into New Zealand’s culinary world.
