Buy Hawke’s Bay Wines Online
The temperate maritime climate and long sunshine hours make Hawke's Bay an ideal region for grape-growing. It is the second largest and the oldest wine region of New Zealand. The first vines of the Hawke's Bay were planted in 1851 by Marist missionaries to make sacramental wines. Hawke's Bay has earned itself an international reputation for producing quality-rich Bordeaux red blends crafted from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Other major wine varieties of Hawke's Bay that have gained popularity are the Chardonnay, Syrah, Pinot Noir and an impressive array of dessert wine styles, especially the aromatic white wines. Hawke's Bay subregions include Havelock North, Hastings, and Gimblett Gravels.
