Proudly Presenting

Our Sponsors

Thank you to our supporters that are helping us to champion Hawke’s Bay as one of the great wine regions of the world.

Baywide Equipment Limited


Owned and operated by local couple Sally & Nick Whyte, Baywide Equipment is the Hawke’s Bay Kärcher Centre. The one stop shop for all your professional cleaning equipment. Nick and Sally are ably assisted by Paul Lowry, both in the workshop and as a salesperson. Baywide Equipment provides services to customers across the whole of Hawke’s Bay.

At the showroom in Hastings, there is an on-site workshop staffed by passionate technicians who have many years of experience. Baywide Equipment works with Kärcher and other manufacturers to offer a full sales, service, and repair facility. Including:

  • direct access to Kärcher spare parts, from dedicated NZ warehousing
  • the support that comes from a long-standing, international, innovative organisation
  • working with many other brands and suppliers

Baywide Equipment currently work with a number of Hawke’s Bay’s wineries and are very keen to support more. They love to come to site and see the cleaning problem you want to solve; then they like to demonstrate on site to ensure you get the right product for your specific need.

Baywide Equipment has a hot water blaster (barrel wash compatible) to hire, as well as a 70-litre super powerful wet vac, ideal for boutique wine makers.

When it comes to cleaning, Baywide Equipment wants to understand your needs so they can offer the best solution for you to run your business knowing you have the cleaning running at it’s most efficient.

It’s not all about the grapes

A recent fire at a local vineyard was a reminder that, when it comes to insurance, it isn’t just all about the grapes.

Having the right amount of material damage cover to repair the loss is essential. So too is business interruption insurance with the right indemnity period, while you get up and running again. This is especially important at the moment with current building constraints.

ICIB has worked with winegrowers across New Zealand for over 30 years and has a deep understanding of the complexities of the industry. We are also a proud sponsor of the Hawke’s Bay Winegrowers Association.

Our new office in Hawke’s Bay is anchored by William Horvath, a Director and Shareholder of ICIB Hawke’s Bay. With over 20 years’ experience as an underwriter and broker, William has a passion for customer service and delivering the best possible outcomes for his clients, regardless of the business complexity.

Like our winegrowers and producers, who focus on producing high quality wines, we focus on meeting the complex needs of the wine sector. We’ve specifically designed Gold Medal Vintage Insurance to protect Kiwi businesses – whether you run a large winery, are a label-only operation or work as a contract winemaker. Our cover simplifies the complex risk management needs of the wine sector, providing appropriate coverage at a competitive cost.

When was the last time you reviewed your policies to ensure they are fit for purpose? We would love to have a chat about your business and risk requirements, so you can focus on making great wine for people to enjoy!
