Some of New Zealand's best wineries and small winery restaurants are just minutes from the farm gate. 20 minutes away is Napier, a city destroyed and rebuilt after an earthquake in 1931. It is now recognised as one of the most significant Art deco cities in the world. Beautiful long ocean swimming beaches are a 30 minute drive to the south. Golf courses, trout fishing rivers, paragliding and hot air ballooning are all close by. We also offer a wide range of activities that we are more than happy to arrange on your behalf.
