At Cape Kidnappers, along with luxury 5 star accommodation, we also pride ourselves on offering a very unique dining experience in a stunning setting.

Part of this luxury experience is enjoying a few glasses of wine - whether that be to complement your meal, to celebrate a special occasion, or simply to expand your wine knowledge by introducing you to the flavours of Hawke’s Bay wine country.

The Cape Kidnappers wine list showcases the best that New Zealand has to offer, while also offering a few gems from Australia and Europe.

The highlights of the list are the wines from right here in Hawke’s Bay, which is a wine region known to produce a wide range of varietals in many unique and different styles.

The Gimblett Gravels area of this region is the warmest area of The Hawke’s Bay, with stoney, alluvial soils. These are perfect conditions for growing grapes that require a “phenolic ripeness” to show off their many attractive qualities. the perfect balance of ripe fruit, acid and friendly tannins provides a successful blueprint for the many award-winning Bordeaux Blends (Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot predominant), Chardonnays and Syrahs that are produced from this area.

In comparison, the sandy sea front and cool coastal breezes of Te Awanga, Hawke’s bay, produces a lighter, "feminine" wine style. Here, the Sauvignon Blancs, Chardonnays, Merlots and Syrahs display vibrant fruit and uplifting aromatics. 

The Cape Kidnappers team are always on hand to offer personalized advice as we strive to enhance your dining experience by finding you that perfect wine.
