Staying at Kiwiesque is a chance to experience life amongst the vines. Our two hectare vineyard surrounds the lodge and villa, and includes Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Albariño and Pinot Gris varieties. There’s something pretty special about enjoying a delicious bottle right where it was grown, and we’re always happy to tell you more about the process. Our ‘Farting Kiwi’ Cab Sav and ‘Mad Cow’ Cab Merlots are aged ‘big’ red wines from the great 2007 vintage. Contrasting them are our 2010 ‘Dog Botherer’ Pinot Noir and ‘Farking Kiwi’ Syrah. We harvest our white wines annually, with a barrel of each produced by the winemaker and students completing the Charles Sturt Wine Science degree at EIT Hawke's Bay. Our ‘Flying Sheep’ Pinot Gris was first produced in 2016 as an Alsace full bodied style, while the 2017 is a Pinot Grigio style wine. We are one of the foundation growers of Albariño wine in NZ. This Spanish White is native to Galicia in Spain and matches beautifully with our great seafood. The 2016 Albariño is a full sweeter style, while the 2017 features the more traditional zingy start and long fruity finish
We love sheep here at Kiwiesque! You’ll see the flock doing their bit here in the vineyard and around the grounds. They are our lawn mowers, and are used in the vineyard where they eat the vine leaves that surround the grape bunches, allowing the sunlight to ripen the grapes, leading to top quality wine. For the last 20 years Bayden has been involved in the development of the ‘Primera’ sheep, which is a blend of the traditional British breeds and renowned for eating quality. For the past 15 years, Bayden has worked with farmers in the UK and Australia to establish this breed and supply high-end lamb markets that demand the highest quality. Guests have the opportunity to dine on our own meat, with our self-catering BBQ packs featuring our own Kiwiesque bred ‘Primera’ lamb and fresh local seafood sourced from the cool waters of Hawke's Bay.
