In complete contrast to Alan’s “fail” experience our wine tasting and picnic lunch at Askerene was the highlight of our day cycling around the Havelock wineries. The ladies at the cellar door are super friendly and the place has a lovely kiwi family charm about it. There is a lovely selection of meats, cheeses and tasty morsels on offer and they supply the baskets, crockery and utensils. You can grab a blanket or if you prefer a table there are plenty of picnic tables. If you cant make a delicious lunch out of this you are probably lacking a bit of imagination!
