Jaunted: Hawkes Bay Wines

It's Day #3 in my Jaunted New Zealand Week, and I'm back to my "New Zealand's Other Wine Regions" series with a look at Hawkes Bay.

Most people are familiar with New Zealand's most famous wine region, Marlborough (ah, Sauvignon Blanc country!), but few realize that the country's second-largest region, Hawkes Bay, is actually its oldest, and most awarded region, and that the Bordeaux-style reds that are produced here compete on the world stage.

It's also home to some of the world's best examples of Art Deco architecture, gorgeous coastline, and a host of other fabulous features that make it a great destination for a trip to New Zealand's North Island.

Just read this article, and you'll find out all that, and more!
