Hawkes Bay Wine & Cheese


Hawke’s Bay is an award-winning maker of leading New Zealand wines and decorated cheese-producing region. Home to the longest established wineries in New Zealand and boasting nearly thirty wineries, you will visit three of the regions’ best wineries and enjoy the delicious combination of cheese, wine, and the famous Rush Monroe’s ice cream. This tour will allow you to see stunning highlights of the bay area and sample some of the fine wines that are synonymous with Hawke’s Bay. Hawke’s Bay is noted for its wide range of microclimates and its deposits of gravelly soils resembling Graves or the Northern Rhone. While the district produces excellent sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, and pinot noir, the latest focus has been on cabernet, merlot, malbec, and syrah. Minimum age is 18 for this tour.

Discover the rich traditions and history of the Maori people on this genuine cultural and heritage tour held on ancestral lands that have been set aside as a conservation reserve. Your tour guide is a knowledgeable local Maori who will share his/her rich and colorful heritage and welcome your questions. Begin with a drive along the picturesque Napier Marine Parade with views to Cape Kidnappers. The scenic Hawke’s Bay countryside unfolds as you pass through the Tuki Tuki Valley farmland, orchards and vineyards, and you will view the legendary Te Mata Peak. Dramatic coastal landscape includes breathtaking views of the island of Motu O Kura. Arriving at the ancestral lands (marae), carefully protected and administered by the Maori people for generations, you will hear about medicinal uses for many of the native plants. You will be greeted in a manner in keeping with the spirituality of the marae--the sound of the conch shell signaling to the home people that you are arriving. You will be formally welcomed into the Arch of the Ancestors. Spend time with the Maori people in small groups to learn about their different crafts and customs. You will see demonstrations of various traditional activities--fighting drills, the art and skill of poi, wood carving and the importance of stones, ancient musical instruments and native eel in the natural wetland habitat. A bottle of water and a "kiwiana" confectionary will be offered and you can browse in the gift shop afterwards for local Maori products and souvenirs. A traditional farewell includes action songs and performances by the home people. This is an intimate, personal and spiritual way to discover the ways of Maori people. Relax and enjoy the countryside views as the coach returns you to the pier and your waiting ship.
