Countryside & Private Home Visit

Puketapu, with lovely rolling hills and picturesque valleys, is quintessential Hawke’s Bay countryside at its best. Local resident Hamish Prins, knows the countryside like the back of his hand, and has seen changes over the past four decades from sheep farming to the recent development of organic vineyards and orchards. Drive through picturesque Hawkes Bay countryside to a boutique winery that produces splendid organic wines and enjoy a wine tasting. Drive through the Puketapu and Dartmoor countryside and view the horticulture, farming, and wine growing regions. Visit a historic local church and learn its history and significance to the local community. Visit Horsford Downs, and meet Hamish and his wife. Wander around the beautifully manicured garden and adjoining organic orchard. Relax on the scenic drive back to Napier via Taradale, with spectacular views of the Heretaunga Plains and the Hawkes Bay coastline. Keep your eyes peeled for the immense, 18-foot-tall wood carving sculpted by chainsaw.
