Had a fantastic day. Only got to see 2 vineyards and the Gin factory. Was still a very enjoyable experience. Recommend to everyone 👍 Ross our tour guide was fantastic.

Hi Jannette, thank you for your review. You were part of a very sociable group whick ment that we ran out of time to experience the fourth activity. But this may not have been a bad thing as the very generous gin tasting ment I was taken to the edge of my obligations as a responsible host.

Ross was from the get go a great host, having been a horticulturist in the Vinyards, he passed on some great information. Also the wine and cheese stop in the middle of the Vinyard was very for us, the highlight of the day. Thanks for the day Ross.

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

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.

This tour packed a lot into one afternoon. Pickup at hotel by Ross was bang on time and as only two of us were booked that day, it amounted virtually to a private tour, and an excellent one at that. We visited four wineries - Mission Estate, Church Road, Esk Valley and Linden Estate. Wine tastings at each were presented by friendly and informed staff - in total I tasted 21 wines though not all were consumed! - be prepared for a good deal of well-mannered spitting if you are to survive the afternoon! We had very pleasant charcuterie platter lunch in the delightful surrounds of Mission Estate. The wine tasting themselves were satisfying enough, but for us the highlight of the afternoon was the guided tour by Ross, steeped in first hand experience of vine growing in Hawkes Bay and a fount of knowledge on the vines and wines. Not only that, as a substantial bonus for us, he proved to be a fund of knowledge about local bird life and took a number of diversions to show us some of the hidden gems around Ahoriri - I'm glad I brought my binoculars! A great day out - highly recommended.
