Hawke's Bay is the oldest wine region in New Zealand and the second largest. Located at 39.4°S, in the North Island of NZ, our climate is maritime and similar to Bordeaux.
We are New Zealand's leading producer of full-bodied red wines. Red wines dominate with over 80% of New Zealand's plantings of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah grapes. We also specialise in rich and complex Chardonnays.
