Local Wines Win Regional Trophies

Hawke’s Bay has underlined its prestige and power in creating top-class, full-bodied, red wines.

Two wineries scooped up three regional trophies in the build-up to the New Zealand Wine of the Year Awards on Saturday.

The Villa Maria Reserve range took out two of the regional trophies and Church Road Winery the third, to the delight of the Hawke’s Bay-based awards chairman Warren Gibson, who said he was pleased to see “a very strong link” between region, variety and style in the trophy winners of this year’s awards.
