Description of this Book

Meandering across the foothills of Te Mata Peak and along the Tuki Tuki Valley, Black Barn Vineyards has become one of Hawke's Bay's most popular drawcards. Combining an award-winning winery with a bistro, amphitheater, summer grower's market and luxury retreats, its evolution over the last 20 years is a story of enterprise and creativity. Owners Kim Thorp and Andy Coltart envisioned a destination that was not just a vineyard but a place that would entice people to stay. With its collection of low-key yet stylish retreats, it is indeed one of the most sought-after places to visit in the region, while the Black Barn growers' market, bistro and outdoor amphitheater are a drawcard with locals and tourists alike. Black Barn- portrait of a place is a fitting tribute to what is now a Hawke's Bay landmark. Lavishly photographed by Brian Culy, with text and poetry contributed by Gregory O'Brien and Jenny Bornholdt, and recipes from the Black Barn Bistro menu, it's the next best thing to being there yourself.
