Crab Farm Winery
Crab Farm Winery is a boutique family owned and operated winery and restaurant located just out of Napier in Bay View. Established in 1987 they offer a wide range of wines all grown on their three vineyards located throughout Hawkes Bay.
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.
Crab Farm Reserve Merlot 2004 won a Gold Medal at the Royal Easter Wine Show 2006.
