With over 2,245 hours of sunshine each year, and warm, dry summers this district is the country’s oldest winemaking region and is New Zealand’s leading producer of award winning red wines.

Country-style markets provide an opportunity for you to meet the growers and sample their wares.  It is also home to a world-class concentration of Art Deco architecture, fresh local produce and artisan food producers complemented by a vibrant arts scene and a rich Maori culture. The region also hosts a number of ‘must see’ events throughout the year. If you are seeking a laid back, friendly and cultural city then this is it.
