Hawkes Bay Wineries

Hawkes Bay is New Zealand's oldest winemaking region, home to New Zealand's oldest winemaking establishments, some producing wines for over 140 years. Today the Hawkes Bay is New Zealand's second-largest wine region, leading the country with 70% of Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% of Chardonnay production. It also produces high quality Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and sweet dessert wines, while smaller boutique wineries are constantly experimenting with new varieties.

The region enjoys high summer temperatures, low rainfall, low relative humidity and high permeability of soils, all contributing to an ideal environment for the production of high-flavour grapes. Hawkes Bay also has a number of sub-regions which each offer unique conditions for grape growing and wine making. Climates and soils vary with the topography, providing the opportunity to grow a range of varieties and produce a considerable range of wine styles.

Why not book yourself on a tour or grab a wine map and take yourself? From boutique wineries to major operations, you're bound to find something special to swirl around your glass. Coupled with fine food the region is a gastronomer's delight.
