Not much I can say about Vince that hasn't already been said, but I will try. The man is the most experienced wine tour guide you could possibly want, however his real strength lies in his ability to make you feel at home and relax and enjoy the day. He knows all the owners and staff at every winery in... More

There were six people on our tour and we visited 4 different vineyards. We had an excellent time! Robert was an amazing tour guide with an extensive knowledge of the wineries within Napier and around the world. We would highly recommend this tour for anyone looking for a great wine tour around the area!

Vince is an entertaining host who immediately involves you by finding out your wine preferences. We were in a small group of only 4 and he picked us up from our motel. He took us to 4 wineries and we were able to sample several lovely wines from small local producers in the Hawkes Bay Area. I would recommend this... More

Vince knows his wines and his vineyards. Small is beautiful. We were well satisfied with the wines, the stories of where we visited, the cheese platter at Salvare, and above all Vince as entertaining host. Thank you!

We had a brilliant afternoon on Vince's wine tour. Visited great wineries and learnt a few things about wine. Vince was the perfect tour guide- accommodating, friendly, knowledgable, with a typical kiwi sense of humour! Loved it!

We always look for smaller wine tours . We find they are more fun and have more character. This tour hit the mark. Vince is very knowledgeable but doesn't take the fun out of it for less experienced guests. We visited four vineyards and enjoyed each of them in a different way. We lucked out .
