Had a Wonderful Lunch and tasted a truly outstanding CabSav., at the Mission, just out or Taradale on Church Rd (it takes a bit of finding). Both the restaurant and winery are well known to the locals but perhaps not so well known outside NZ. If you are in Hawke’s Bay on a sunny day make sure you have a lunch at the mission. Not a bad spot to take a photo or two either.
If you don’t want only to taste the wines the story of the mission and its trials and tribulations, floods, fires and earthquakes is pretty amazing as well.
