This is the oldest Winery in NZ. The place has great history to it. We didn't eat at the restaurant as it was very expensive, but the wines we tasted were great. But, if you're up for a good winery, we preferred the Church Road Estate located next door - better reds and restaurant.

The worst experience I've had in New Zealand. Rude staff. They treat people like nuisances. I had to approach someone to get service and I said to the lady 'How are you today?' Her answer was: 'Good' and she continued doing her own thing. We were prepared to buy a few bottles, but we decided to go elsewhere instead. Never... More

We visited this winery in late summer. The place is not huge but definitely informative and you get to taste the beautiful wine (which has since been my favourite), and take some of your favourites home! Wonderful place with brilliant service, sommelier who taught us lots about wine drinking!

We visited this winery to help improve our knowledge of New Zealand wines and we had a lovely wine lasting experience and purchased a few bottles ( we could have bought more if we had room in our luggage!) Lovely setting and we enjoyed learning about the wine estate and its history.

We really enjoyed our visit to Mission Estate. The history of the building, the wine tastings and the excellent lunch are a wonderful memory. The grounds are a beautiful place to sit outside and enjoy a lunch or supper. It was a little chilly, but their sheltered eating area was quite comfortable. The staff met the expectations of the surroundings... More

This restaurant and winery are in a historic beautiful building on top of the hills overlooking Napier and the valley. It is at about 15 mins drive from Napier and Havelock North and never fails to impress. The restaurant is one we have tried on multiple occasions and it is always excellent - beautifully prepared dishes and excellent quality -... More
