Over Easter, we had 8 family and friends to stay, from Wellington, New Plymouth and Gisborne. Every day we did an activity to justify the great food and wine we enjoyed each night. The highlight for me was the 35 km cycle ride from the Napier suburb of Bayview (on the north side of Hawke Bay) to the wonderful winery restaurant of Clearview, close to Cape Kidnappers. (On the south side of Hawke Bay) We began in rain but ended with fine weather and great food and wine. I personally think the reserve chardonnay of Clearview’s is the best in the world!
