TERRÔIR AT CRAGGY RANGE
The impressive backdrop of Te Mata peak makes for a wonderful summer al fresco lunch at Terrôir, with a glass of Craggy Range chardonnay in hand. In winter, the impressive dining room has a decidedly French country theme – from the stone-flagged floor, chandeliers and impressive tapestry to the subdued lighting and roaring open fire. The menu veers French too – think confit of Mount Cook salmon, twice-baked gruyere souffle or pork loin with celeriac puree. It’s all perfectly matched with Craggy Range’s wines by welldrilled, confident staff, and, if you are buying by the bottle, then the older vintages provide plenty of interest. If wine isn’t your thing, then there’s also a great selection of Hawke’s Bay craft beers to be had.
