Craggy Range Winery, Hawkes Bay
Sitting at the foothills of Te Mata Peak in the heart of New Zealand's renowned Hawke's Bay wine region, Craggy Range Winery offers an idyllic place to rest your head and sample some of the finest wines in the country. With a world-class restaurant and luxury accommodation nestled amongst the vines as the Tukituki River meanders by, anyone craving peace and tranquility coupled with fine-dining and warm hospitality will quickly fall under Craggy Range's mesmerising spell.

Just a handful cottages and lodges are dotted in the vines and along the riverfront. The four Vineyard Cottages feature one or two bedrooms, an attractive kitchen and living area with a wood-burner for cosy nights, glass of local Syrah in hand. The private terrace is surrounded by vines and views that stretch to the rolling hills and endless sky. For an elevated stay, opt for one of the Garden Cottages with two bedrooms and luxurious furnishings, but for a truly memorable stay amongst the vines, the riverside Lodges are private retreats for up to four guests, spacious and indulgent hideaways with breathtaking views and a private courtyard.
The eye-catching Craggy Range Restaurant, with its circular form and impressive interior, is one of the most sought after dining venues in the region. Reservations are essential and the menu draws from local produce, ranging from seafood and lamb to plant-based cuisine and produce from the kitchen garden. The slow cooked paūa (a kiwi delicacy) with champagne sauce, fennel and crumbed mussels is a taste sensation, especially when paired with an exquisite local grape.
The spectacular coastline is a short drive away, and a visit to the gannet colony at Cape Kidnappers is fascinating. This is also home to the impressive and utterly breathtaking Cape Kidnappers golf course, a must for keen golfers. Other local attractions include the art deco scene at nearby Napier - a private guided walking tour gives you an exclusive and personalised art deco experience - as well as a range of other vineyards in the region to explore and taste!
