Cellar Doors

With a well-deserved reputation as 'wine country', no list of Hawke's Bay road trips is complete without including a jaunt around our cellar doors. There's more than 30 to choose from, so your biggest problem is likely to be deciding where to go!

Our best suggestion is to pick a geographic sub-region and focus your efforts on exploring it in more depth. You've also got loads of options for transport - self drive (with designated sober driver of course), hire a bike to navigate the Hawke's Bay Trails, or join an organised tour.

Our feature road trip takes in the well-known sub regions of Bridge Pa and Gimblett Gravels - home to some of the country's most celebrated vineyards.
