I've lived in Hawkes Bay for 27 years and recently took leave having been lucky enough to get a locum
for six months. So what to do while enjoying the Hawkes Bay sunshine? Ross, owner and operator of "Vines and Views" had the answer for me.
I can whole heartedly recommend this trip. I did the half day winery tour but this was no ordinary winery tour. Yes, the usual wine tastings (4 wineries, no extra charges, entertaining purveyors of good NZ wine) but the X factor on the trip was getting into the "bowels" of a winery and seeing the vats, gooey grapes, presses, separation machinery, and fermentations that take place. Then to top it all off a trip up a rugged New Zealand Road in a comfortable four wheel drive bus to the lookout where great views back to Napier (and beyond) are augmented by a yummy cheese platter and a glass of famous NZ sauvignon blanc.
