The New Zealand Wine Centre is one of Napier's Must-Do attractions. It is truly a wine lovers paradise or a good place to start to experience all about Hawke's Bay wines. The Hawke's Bay wine country has a lot to offer and produces great wines - the New Zealand Wine Centre makes it easy for everyone to learn, taste and enjoy great wines. Choose from over six different tasting options, go on a virtual scenic flight over the Bay or watch the History of Napier Film. As another little extra, the New Zealand Wine Centre is located in the iconic AMP building, a must-see for Art Deco Lovers.

Greeted by Andy who was amazing. We did a wine tasting adventure tasting, which started in aroma rooms, then we had a 6 wine flight tasting with an interactive film. So cool, never seen anything like it. We decided to also partake in a dessert wine tasting. We could have stayed there all day, Of course we left with some... More

The New Zealand Wine Centre is located in an Art Deco building in central Napier and is worth visiting as an introduction to the region's wines, as well as those of other parts of the country. It includes film tours of the Hawkes Bay region.

We love wine and think we are have a reasonable knowledge of how to taste and what we are looking for. These tastings are amazing, we did the Wine tasting adventure and the dessert wine tasting. Great value for money we tasted a total of 9 wines, the staff were so friendly and knowledgeable, we found ourselves walking out with... More

We didn't have enough time to do the virtual wine tasting experience they offer, so we opted for a simple white wine tasting in store. Lovely customer service as she described the 5 wines we would be tasting. We each received a scoring sheet for us to jot down our wine tasting notes complete with a description of each wine....

We went there in the afternoon out of curiosity to see what was there as would be unable to go on a wine tour due to lack of time on our behalf. The staff there were extremely friendly and after hearing our plight they suggested that we could do a half hour virtual wine tour there, sampling either six white... More

Felt compelled to write a review of the wonderful New Zealand Wine Centre after reading some previous comments regarding customer service. We visited the wine centre this weekend and could not have been more impressed with the friendly, delightful staff! Other reviewers must have been talking about a different place because we were warmly welcomed and introduced to the tasting... More

Waited for the staff to greet us (surely for them to start a conversation not the customer) but nothing. And no signs or literature re their wine tastings to be seen. And very cheeky calling itself the "New Zealand" wine centre - It was all about the Hawkes Bay and even then I thought the number of wineries on display... More

A useful, informative and fun introduction to the Hawke's Bay wine region. I recommend the aroma room followed by the film and tasting experience. Delightful and informative. We bought a package which combined this with a personalised tasting trip to some of the wineries, run by John Lucas, of Hawke's Bay Tailored Travel, which I cannot more highly recommend. John...

The wine tasting adventure is a superb way to experience a variety of fabulous wines of the Hawke's Bay region, particularly for those with a limited amount of time available. The retail store is an absolute delight and the staff helpful, friendly and extremely well informed. An absolute must do when in Napier

I guess we Australians are spoiled by our free wine tasting but I was hoping to taste some NZ wines that we might be able to buy back home. The staff were very helpful but the wine choices were quite limited and the tasting expensive. We love NZ wine and have enjoyed most of the ones we bought at random... More
