Combine shopping with an art deco sightseeing stroll around central Napier before splashing about in the Ocean Spa pool complex. Drive through Taradale, then escape suburbia with lunch on the lawn at the grand Mission Estate winery. Stop in Taste Cornucopia in Hastings before heading to CJ Pask Winery for wine-tasting. Then over to shop and drink your way around the hip port area of Ahuriri, ending the day with waterfront cocktails, wine and tapas at Provedore.
The next day, stroll through Havelock North village, visiting all the new shops. Then head out to Black Barn Vineyards to taste its ground-breaking reds. Lunch is out by the beach at Elephant Hill or Clearview Estate winery. Burn off those calories with a walk along Te Awanga beach before going out to Craggy Range for dinner.
