Beautiful in town winery

Gracious tasting of good wines with great host. Earns its place as the premier wine visit and cellar in Napier. Offered advice on other wineries without hesitation.

My wife and I recently visited Mission Estate and as on other occasions, were highly impressed. Our visit this time included some sampling, enjoying a lunchtime platter, and looking round the beautifully maintained buildings and grounds. Our lunch platter was amazingly generous, highly appetising and well presented. It was a busy day and we hadn't booked; however, we were quickly... More

We were here with our friends and we decided in the very last minute that we wanna have lunch here, booking a table was quick, waitress was very polite and friendly. However menu was a bit disappointing, a couple of more vegetarian options wouldnt hurt. The icing on the cake was the dessert, i just loved it. I would definitly... More

We visited this winery as part of a tour and were not disappointed. The location is stunning and the food and wine delicious. The wineries history was very interesting and it looked like a great place to have a wedding !

We sampled some of their wines, walked around the grounds of the winery and decided to eat dinner there. But the restaurant didn't open until 6:00pm, so we spent time strolling around Napier waiting for 6:00pm to roll around. Well worth the wait. Excellent wine, excellent service, excellent food. The Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding was scrumptious. The only "negative"... More

This was our second stop on our biking wine tour, and we were keen to buy some wine, sit in the sun and have something to eat, and get a few beers for the boys (who were over the wine already). We had a frosty reception. There was no offer to be taken through to the restaurant, we were begrudgingly... More

When it comes to eating out at NZ vineyards, you couldn't hope for much more than what is on offer at Mission Estate. The setting and views are sublime - on a nice day you couldn't hope to be anywhere else in the world. Sitting out on the lawn is a must! The food is excellent - being a vegan... More

Love this winery. The staff are very knowledgeable and friendly, especially enjoy the older lady who has been there each time we've visited (sorry don't know your name!). She has a great personality as well as knowing a lot about the Mission wines so we really enjoyed our tasting there. To top it off she took my little girl out... More

This was very interesting place to visit started by monks, who still have an interest in the winery. The building is historic and so are the vin-yards. We were taken into a lovely old room, with original furniture, and given the full history of the winery, and some tastings. Well worth a visit just for the history.
