Hawkhurst Vineyards have produced grapes over the last 25 years and sold them to other winemakers, both large and small. We are a boutique Hawke's Bay Wine Estate, specialists in the production of bottled aged classical red wine in particular Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Merlot Blends. These noble grape varieties produce the finest red table wines throughout the World.
All our wine is 100% New Zealand grown. Only fine quality grapes can produce quality wines and our vineyards are tended in a way which reflects this belief. Grapes processed come exclusively from our vineyards. Vines are trellised and pruned in a way which produces the maximum leaf and fruit exposure to sunlight therefore increasing natural grape sugars and flavours & improves colour and extract.
