Short on time but want to try as many of the world class wines our region has to offer? Then head along to Rimu Wine Bar, at Mapua Wharf. Owner and Winemaker Patrick Stowe opened the new wine bar in late 2015 and it's proving to be a popular destination.
"My idea was that people could come into the wine bar and try wine from pretty much every vineyard in the region, I asked the vineyards to supply a flagship wine or something a bit different," he said.
"So if you don't have time to go to all vineyards you can come to the bar and do a tasting."
