Departure Point

Traveler pickup is offered
We pick up from all hotels and motels and private locations in the greater Napier area.

You're picked up around noon by 9-passenger 4WD van for the afternoon wine tour of Napier. The 6-hour itinerary begins with wine tasting at the Mission Estate Winery, where you can select a wine from the estate range to pair with your chef's platter. 

Then travel onward to the cellar of Church Road Winery for a comprehensive wine tasting that includes sparkling wine. Next up is Esk Valley Estate, which features premium hand-crafted wines. Tours of the winemaking facility are available on weekdays during the harvest season.

Linden Estate is the final winery you'll visit. Here, your guide accompanies you into the vineyard and explains the process of grape growing and vineyard management; then taste an extensive range of wines predominantly made from grapes your guide personally planted more than a dozen years ago.

Before returning to your hotel, you'll travel up to a private gazebo and viewing platform 660-feet (202-meters) above sea level. Savor views of Hawke's Bay while you sip more wine with cheese and crackers.

Hi Jo, Thanks for the great review. It was good to see The Gals making the most of your time in Napier as a results of the concert cancellation. Regards Ross

Not to be missed!

A thoroughly enjoyable trip. We were picked up by Gary and driven to meet with others taking part in lunch at The Mission. Here we met Ross, had an excellent tasting and brilliant lunch. All of the venues offered something different and the tour ended with a very sociable cheese and wine under the shade of trees in a vineyard! Excellent value for money!

Hi there, Thank you for posting a great review. The wine cheese and biscuits ( crackers) out amongst the vines is certainly very sociable, and that round table really works. Cheers Ross
Absolutely fantastic!!!!

Ross provided an excellent experience. He is knowledgeable about the area and not just the wine. He has worked the vineyards and provides tremendous insights into the wines and wine making history. We can highly recommend this tour.

This was an absolutely lovely tour and day. High points go to both the Chefs Platter delicious! and tour guide Ross, who has worked in the wine industry for 25 years, and who had informative answers to my many, many questions. I would definitely recommend this tour if you find yourself in the Napier area!

This was our first winery tour we've ever been on, and it couldn't have gone any better! The guides were extremely thoughtful - they had split us up from the other group which had booked on the same tour that day as they were a larger group and so the guides thought we would be uncomfortable. We had a lovely trip around 4 different wineries had the Chef's Platter at the first winery and snack at the third and the guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the wineries and the city. Thank you so much for the experience.

Brilliant, everyone on the tour was talkative and friendly, the guy running it is extremely knowledgeable, welcoming and informative. The evening spot on the summit is a brilliant experience. I'd recommend to anyone. My only point would be that the tour bus is not the most wheelchair accessible.
