History

  • Hawke's Bay is New Zealand's oldest wine region with beginnings in 1851 pioneering innovation and leadership. The soils and climate that so excited the early wine making efforts of those pioneers, continues to provide the inspiration for the current generation of Hawke's Bay winemakers. It is now New Zealand's second largest wine region and the largest premium red wine producing region in the country.

Regional Information

  • Hawke's Bay covers a total land area of 1.4 million hectares on 350km of Pacific Ocean coastline. Over thousands of years, 4 major Hawke's Bay rivers moved and formed valleys and terraces to create over 25 different soil types from clay loam, to limestone to sands and free draining gravels and red metal. Warm, north-facing hillsides, river valleys and terraces, and coastal areas provide incredible wines that are bursting with flavour.
