Hawkes Bay experiences a more moderate climate compared to other grape growing areas in New Zealand. Warm days, coolish nights and a gentle sea breeze make it ideal for the ripening of red grape varieties. We source our grapes predominately from the world renowned Gimblett Gravels region and its surrounding area in Hawkes Bay.
