Hawke's Bay Winegrowers Association held a series of winter wine walks in Hastings and Napier during winter 2020. These events provided a good excuse for locals to get out on a week-day evening to support Hawke's Bay hospitality and winemaking businesses. I was invited along to photograph the Napier wine walk, following the punters along on their wine tasting meander through the city streets. This was a seriously fun event and here's hoping it becomes an annual feature in the Hawke's Bay event calendar.
