Just five minutes drive up the road from the sleepy Hawke’s Bay village of Havelock North is Black Barn vineyards. These guys are so much more than just top notch Hawke’s Bay wine.
Try their wines at the cellar door. Grab a bite at their award winning bistro and ‘love local’ kitchen store. Treat yourself to something at their summer Saturday morning grower’s market. Catch a gig at the outdoor concert amphitheatre. Why not stay the night in one of their sixteen luxury accommodation retreats? And if you really want to fall in love with the place you can tie the knot here too!
It’s why they say you can stay for an hour or two, a day or two or a week or two!
This is their 2023 vintage Rose and, just quietly, it’s a bit bloody delicious. A dry style with plenty of summer fruit flavours like cherry and strawberry. Serve lightly chilled and if you want to pair it with food think light summer salads, white meats and fish.
