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 88% of New Zealand's production (tonnes) of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah grapes in 2016. We also specialise in rich, complex Chardonnays.
