The river of the dead dog is much prettier than its name might suggest. Actually, the scenery is spectacular along this stretch of the Tuteikuri, one of three rivers flowing from the central plateau to the coast of the Hawkes Bay wine country. The Mason's farm is located a little way upriver from the settlement of Puketapu, in the Dartmoor valley. Unlike the river, the name of the village translates from Maori into English much more attractively - Sacred Hill.
