Winery tour Hawkes Bay, New Zealand offers a unique opportunity to visit some of the world’s most prestigious wineries, along with some of the country’s best food and wine. Many visitors choose to go on a guided trip, although if you prefer, you can always decide to take your own private wine tour. This article offers some general information about winery tours of the Hawke’s Bay region.
The wineries vary widely in their locations, styles and services. You might want to ask a local, “Where is Pinot Grigio?” or, if you have access to the internet, “Where is Cabernet Sauvignon?” to narrow down the choices before you contact them. In this article, we offer some general information about the different wineries in the region, along with an objective, subjective opinion about each winery’s products, services and reputation.
As with any business in any region of the world, it is impossible to state with certainty that every winery is the best, and every winery is the most enjoyable for a particular visitor. It is difficult to give a blanket rating, however, because each winery is unique in its offerings, its facilities, its history, its employees and their reputations. Some may be the finest in the land, but if you don’t like Cabernet Sauvignon, you won’t like Pinot Grigio either. A winery tour should offer something for everyone. If you have the chance to do so, arrange for a tripadvisor member’s review of the winery before you leave.
