The food and wine are world class

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Travel -

Hawke’s Bay isn’t just fa­mous for winer­ies. Food­wise, it’s the Mediter­ranean of New Zealand, host­ing NZ’S hottest gourmet event, the Food & Wine Clas­sic. Twice a year (June and Novem­ber), it show­cases the re­gion’s best tip­ples and pro­duce. Min­gling with celebrity chefs, de­vour­ing gourmet meals and sip­ping up ev­ery last drop of de­li­cious wine, I could not have planned a bet­ter time to visit the re­gion. Out­side the event, Hawke’s Bay’s vine­yards de­liver full-bod­ied reds and rich, com­plex chardon­nays. A visit to Bistron­omy in Napier will of­fer deep, rich flavours. See fawc.co.nz.
