Ross collected us, and transported us safely to Mission Estate, then to Church Road then to Linden Estate and delivered back to the hotel we had no idea just how intricate the wine making can be, we learnt so much and have a better appreciation and respect for the industry

An excellent afternoon
, Jan 2021
What an absolutely wonderful way to spend an afternoon. Ross was very knowledgeable and interesting to talk to and the vineyards we went to were lovely. The highlight for me was definitely the wine and cheese in the vines! I highly recommend this tour.

Wonderful private(-ish) tour
, Dec 2019
One of the best wine tours I've been on! We got to visit 3 wineries, and my girlfriend and I were fortunate to be the only two participants on that day so we get to ask a lot of questions regarding grape growing and wine making, and Ross is really professional and gave us a lot of insight on the subject matter. We also get to enjoy some wonderful cheeses and grapes at a private location out on the vineyards, and Ross was kind enough to let us take some of them away to enjoy after the tour. I will definitely recommend my friends to join this tour when they visit Napier.

Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to provide Vines and Views a great review. Really pleased that I was able to inform you about New Zealand wines. My back ground as a vineyard manager over a good many years certainly helps. Cheers Ross
Great Tour and Great Wines

My wife and I found this wine tour online and are really happy we did. Ross was the driver (and owner) of the tour company and his attention to detail and knowledge was excellent. I would highly recommend this tour and would book it again when I return. Fun and informative. Phil and Kathy

Hi Phil and Kathy, Thank you for taking the time to review the tour you had with me in such a positive way. And also to say that if and when you come back to Napier you will book with me again. Cheers Ross
July 2019 Napier Wine Tour
, Jul 2019
We had a knowledgeable interesting tour guide who bought extra depth and experience to the tour by way of being a manager to various vineyards in the area. From an Australian perspective it was exciting to sample the varieties and labels available in New Zealand that we do not have access to. The tour bus picked us up at our hotel which made the tour very relaxing and we found it an excellent afternoon in the Napier wine region.

Hi Carol, Thank you for reviewing the wine tour you experienced with me. Its always good to be able to show case some of our great regional wines to our Aussie cousins. And yes I always pick up from my guests accommodation. Regards Ross
