On Yer Bike Winery Tours
On Yer Bike Winery Tours offers a unique, one-day, cycling experience giving visitors the opportunity to enjoy tasting some of Hawkes Bay's finest foods and wines, while at the same time, taking in the superb scenery of the Gimblett Gravels and Bridge Pa Triangle grape growing regions on the scenic Heretaunga Plains in Hawke's Bay. Cycle past vineyards, olive groves, orchards, horse studs, and farmland - all on flat terrain with wonderful vistas. You start the tour at Ash Ridge Wines from there you can cycle to Sileni Estate, Alpha Domus, Abbey Cellars, Triangle Cellars, Ngatarawa Estate, Salvare, Trinity Hill and Te Awa. This makes up around a 20Km circuit and you can comfortably do it in around 4-5 hours depending on how long you stay for tasting wine at each winery. Alternatively you can cycle the shorter route of Ngatarawa Road and cover 6 out of the 9 wineries at a more leisurely pace, soaking up the sun and enjoying the ambiance of the wineries and surrounding countryside. Your package includes bike rental, safety helmets (compulsory in New Zealand), detailed maps and information on the wineries and full vehicle support for when "you run out of puff" or would like wine collected.
