Crab Farm Winery celebrates limited amounts of hand crafted quality produced wine. Our family concern is situated in Bay View just north of Napier. Being less than 200 metres from the Pacific Ocean provides the vineyard with moderate night temperatures, lessening the chances of frost damage. The vineyard grows on a site of river metal silt and ex-marine muds. Before the 1931 earthquake, more than half of this area was under estuary tidal waters. This huge natural disaster raised Crab Farm by 9 feet. The opportunity to grow grapes on this site 50 years later was taken up by James and Hamish Jardine. – Description from Alejandro

While many of us think of wine country as a tourist destination, the truth of the matter is that it is an agricul... Read More
