“Hawkes Bay is New Zealand’s oldest winemaking region, internationally renowned for its premium red wines and full bodied white wines.  This enduring reputation is underpinned by the favourable climate which is great for grapes and great for cycling” 

Alwyn Corban, Ngatarawa Wines


For those who like a little luxury, take a 4-night retreat with Ventouro at Blackbarn, a boutique vineyard in Hawkes Bay wine country that’s been voted one of the top 10 vineyard visits in the world.

There are plenty of delights to discover in this winemaking region, and we’re here to guide you to the best of them. During your exploration of the area we stop off at the grower’s market to experience the beautiful regional food and fresh produce – the very same seasonal ingredients that Blackbarn’s chef will be using to prepare your dinner that night. 

A visit to the Hawkes Bay is incomplete without tasting the award-winning wines are created here, and your tour will include exclusive wine tastings at both Blackbarn Vineyard and at Ngatarawa, where you’ll be personally guided by Head Winemaker Peter Gough. In the mornings, wake up in your luxury accommodation to a beautiful breakfast overlooking the vines, with coffee from Rocket to fuel you for the day ahead. Bliss.
