Hawke's Bay on the east coast of the North Island has been described as New Zealand's leading food and wine region.It is the country's oldest winemaking region and is its leading producer of award winning red wines. With over 2200 hours of sunshine, it attracts visitors all year round. It extends from the high, forested Ruahine and Kawkeka Ranges to the coast, flattening out to become the Heretaunga Plains. A number of wide rivers offer excellent fishing, and there are fine beaches from Mahia in the north to Porangahau in the south.
