Hawke's Bay
The words “Hawke’s Bay” could easily be substituted with “Wine Country”, so famous is this sunny region for its delicious drop. It’s also home to the Art Deco capital, Napier, which was rebuilt in the architectural style following the 1931 earthquake, and celebrates its distinctive heritage with an annual festival.
