Story without Video

Event Details





A Hawke’s Bay winery is trying to help a rare native bird nest on the waterways which run through its vineyards.

Church Road Winery has been building rafts for weweia, also known as the New Zealand dabchick, for the last eight years.

The winery team, including staff from both the vineyard and cellar door, spent the day on Thursday building rafts for the weweia, as well as planting native trees and clearing non-native plants such as gorse.
