Alpha Domus Vineyard Hawke’s Bay

About half way through our cycle of the Bridge Pa Triangle in Hawke’s Bay we came across Alpha Domus vineyard, nestled in the vicinity of an historic airfield.  The grounds were home to the training of many Air New Zealand pilots throughout history, hence prominence of the aircraft depicted on the vineyards label.  Established in 1995 by the Ham family, originally emigrated from Holland, Alpha Domus released their first wines to the market in 1996.

I have to credit Alpha Domus Vineyard with having one of the best cellar doors we have been to.  The host was so informative and we tried lots of new wines that we were really impressed with.  Our absolute favourites were the Viognier ‘The Wingwalker’ 2010 which we purchased and the ‘Barnstormer’ Syrah.

Now, every time I enjoy a bottle of Viognier I am transported back to our chalet in Lake Taupo where we enjoyed the bottle we purchased from the cellar door whilst watching the most incredible sunset on the horizon.
