Food & Wine
Hawke's Bay's warm Mediterranean climate has grown New Zealand's finest food and wine producing region.
As the country's oldest and second largest winegrowing region, Hawke's Bay terroir is ideal for cultivating full-bodied reds including Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, as well as world-class Chardonnay. With more than 30 cellar doors to explore - by bike, car or guided tour - your next drop is never far away.
A bounty of produce overflows from roadside stalls and farmers' markets, while exceptional rural, urban and winery dining opportunities exist in almost every corner of the region.
