I spent a very enjoyable day on a Grape Escape wine tour: 6 vineyards, including a leisurely lunch stop. Booking was easy and included a pick up/drop off in Napier. Greg was a good host and driver and knowledgable about the wines and area. I particularly appreciated the small party size, 9 in total, as the group was friendly and... More

Gregg is a nice guy and put lots of interesting questions to the winery staff, which brought out information us novices would not have thought of. After drinking at three vineyards, we stopped to enjoy a nice cheeseboard in the sunshine,... More

The Grape Escape tour was fantastic! Great for wine lovers & novices. We booked our tour on 10/29. Greg picked us up promptly at our hotel. It was a nice intimate group of 6 including us. This made me happy that we didn't have to battle large groups or crowds. The van was clean, comfy and spacious. Greg was very... More

Great afternoon spent visiting four vineyards, good and generous samples and definitely built up some useful knowledge of the local wines. Trinity Hill was a highlight. The cheese platter perfectly topped off the afternoon and highly recommend the Grape Escape.

Collected from our Napier hotel at midday, and spent the next five hours on the most informative, and fun filled winery tour to be found in the Hakes Bay. Excellent choice of wineries, very generous tastings and sampling at the chosen cellar doors. Hugely recommended to any wine lover.

We had a wonderful day with Greg touring this glorious country. We even ordered wine and had it shipped. When it did not arrive in the States, we emailed Greg. He tracked it down, making the wine and our day with Greg even more delicious.

Great guide and fantastic wineries. Nice group size and we had an amazing day where we shared two bottles of wine and a cheese platter at the last winery. Can definitely recommend this wine tour.
