Hawke’s Bay Foodie Trail


Time for a little luxury and cycling in Hawke's Bay

Ventouro offers guided tours of the worlds most beautiful destinations. From luxury weekend retreats in New Zealand and Australia’s wine regions, to week-long journeys through Marlborough, Queenstown, Hawkes Bay and the Barossa Valley.

For those who like a little luxury, you can choose the Hawke’s Bay Foodie Trail, a 4-night retreat at Blackbarn boutique vineyard in Hawkes Bay wine country that’s been voted one of the top 10 vineyard visits in the world.

The Hawke’s Bay Trails provide an extensive, mostly flat network of trails from which you can explore the sights and attractions, whilst soaking up breathtaking coastal and rural scenery.  Following dedicated cycle paths and quiet country roads, it offers day trips for all ages and abilities.

Hawke’s Bay is New Zealand’s oldest wine making region and internationally renowned for its premium red wines and full bodied white wines. It also has a fabulous climate, just perfect for growing grapes and cycling.

A visit to the Hawkes Bay is incomplete without tasting the award-winning wines, and the tour includes exclusive wine tastings at both Blackbarn Vineyard and at Ngatarawa, where you’ll be personally guided by Head Winemaker Peter Gough.

With Ventouro’s signature trail support you can enjoy each moment of the ride, with every need catered for, whether it’s a homemade snack whilst riding, tailored tips and information from your local guide or a perfectly selected meal to complete your day.
