Wine tours/tastings

Hi! Coming to Hawke's Bay for a few days and wanted to do a wine tasting for a day. Was wondering what companies people recommend using? That are 1)fun and 2)hopefully not super expensive?

Or is it possible to do a tour on your own w/o driving it?

It is possible to do your own winery tour however you need a car and a non drinking nominated driver!

There are wine tours via bicycles as an alternative to drink driving! You mention not super expensive so am not going to recommend limo service! Using a cab (taxi) would also be expensive unless you negotiated hourly or half day rate and spread the cost over say four people.

Any of the listed wine tour companies under Hawkes Bay will be worth contacting. Some will also accommodate to your own requirements ie if you are on time constraint or only wish to visit particular wineries. Or perhaps your accommodation host can recommend a particular wine tour company.

A few personal favourites :

Crab Farm Winery

The Mission

Church Road Winery

Clearview Estate

Te Mata Estate

Ngatarawa Wines

Sileni Estate


Craggy Range

Have a great time in Hawkes Bay!
