4 Day Breckenridge Lodge Food and Wine Experience
4 Day Breckenridge Lodge Food and Wine Experience
If superb kiwi hospitality, a peaceful location and gourmet food & wine are amongst your pleasures in life, this gourmet short break will tick all the boxes. Relax and enjoy private, luxury lodge accommodation, nestled in the picturesque valley of Omarunui in the sunny Hawke's Bay.
On arrival at Napier airport, collect your car and drive to Breckenridge Lodge, a unique architecturally designed home. Each private guest bedroom has a spectacular view overlooking a vineyard and expansive rural landscape. All of the rooms are air conditioned and have their own ensuite bathroom. Your host is truly passionate about food and wine. Apart from wanting you to relax and feel at home at the Lodge during your stay, you will have the opportunity to experience exceptional gourmet food and wine. The dinner menu is designed in the degustation style with 5 different courses each matched with a selected wine and changes regularly depending on seasonal produce available.
Hawkes Bay has over 70 vineyards and is New Zealand's oldest wine region. Most of the vineyards have a cellar door for you to sample their different varieties and we’ve included a full day wine tour with a local wine expert. You will taste wines not generally available to the public and sample current vintages direct from the barrel or tank. Your personalised tour will reflect your wine preferences and interests, and will give you a far more insightful view into the local industry than would generally be possible. Visit some of the other 40 wineries in the region... perhaps enjoy a relaxed lunch in a vineyard setting.
Your guide for the day has an excellent knowledge of wine and the Hawkes Bay wine scene. You will taste wines not generally available to the public and sample current vintages direct from the barrel or tank. Your personalised tour will reflect your wine preferences and interests, and will give you a far more insightful view into the local industry than would generally be possible.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
You won’t pay more by booking your short break holiday with Relaxing Journeys. We have access to discounted industry rates and special deals, only available to those in the travel trade. So the amount we make on each short break, is the difference between these rates and retail rates that you would pay if you booked it all yourself. Of course, you also get peace of mind that all is organised professionally and you get our fantastic service thrown in! There will be occasions where a property may release a ‘walk in’ deal that may better our quote, however our prices are the best available at the time of booking.
Your dedicated tour consultant will email you through a quote. If it looks good, then full payment is required to confirm the booking (within 45 days) or a deposit of $100 per person is required outside this period. This must be paid by credit card (Visa or Mastercard only). We do not charge credit card fees on our short break packages. If the properties listed in the holiday package are unavailable at this time, we will provide you with alternatives until you are happy.
We welcome bookings from anywhere in the world. You can see how much each package is using our currency converter on this page. Only the New Zealand Dollar (NZ$) prices on this site are accurate. Prices in other currencies have been converted for your convenience, and are there to help you to compare to your own currency. All of our New Zealand tours are charged in New Zealand Dollars. Your credit card company will convert the amount paid from your currency into NZD automatically for you.
Some short break packages do not include (or may not require) a hire car, or internal flights. Relaxing Journeys can organise these extras for you and include them in your quote if you wish – or you can just book the short break ‘as is’, and organise everything else yourself. These extras can be requested after choosing your date and clicking ‘Confirm Availability’ on the right of this page.
The cost of getting to & from the airport to your accommodation is generally not included, although on some occasions it is, in which case we have specifcally mentioned it in the itinerary. There are always plenty of taxis or shuttles waiting at the airport. You also have the option in most cases to catch a bus into the city centres.
Once your deposit has been paid and you have received your deposit confirmation, we will organise your short break and when completed (normally within 48 hours) we will email you confirmation. When you pay your balance (45 days before the start date) we will email you a ‘Short Break Voucher’ shortly after along with your arrival information and everything else you need. Print this off and take it with you to NZ.
