Every time we go to Napier we also head to Mission estate for lunch. This time we were treated to a wedding rehearsal which took the experience further up. The food as always is good but the atmosphere was excellent. If you visit napier, you must visit this place.

We were served at our tasting by Trevor one of the real characters at a NZ cellar door (up there with Tiger from Chard Farm fame). He took us through a number of wines and was able to enlighten us as to why our local London pub stock their wines. Thanks Trevor a good end to our day's tasting.

Called in for lunch at Mission estate, fabulous grounds, and lovely old homestead. Nice views. Lunch very nice in the garden, food excellent, staff attentive. Other couple tried the wine tasting which they enjoyed. A pleasant place to bide your time

This winery had a gorgeous view, however the restaurant is closed for renovations at the moment, so they're only offering tastings. Still worth the trip.

My sister and I rode our bikes from downtown Napier to this winery. We selected a bottle of wine from several we tasted, laid out a small blanket in the vineyard, unpacked a simple lunch we brought with us, and enjoyed one of the best lunches of out trip! The folks at the winery were very helpful.

Perhaps the most consistent restaurant in the Hawkes Bay. More than ample portions of superb food and the best value wine in any restaurant in the Hawkes Bay. Jewelstone Chardonnay and Antoine are recommended and are reasonably priced. Staff are attentive, friendly and long serving. A must if you are visiting Hawkes Bay and want a meal to savour!

An awesome day spent trying pretty much every single wine they produced, and it may be the wine talking but it was an awesome experience.

We were totally mesmerised as we approached and entered Mission Estate. We couldn't stay for lunch but were actively attended to by the lovely ladies in the tasting room who were only too happy to share their knowledge and expertise, while offering us samples of some simply gorgeous wines and some great deals for our purchases. Thanks so much.

Beautiful winery and terrific wines. We just stopped by to buy a bottle of a wine we had at a B&B the night before, and the staff there were wonderful, giving us a 7-wine tasting. Highly recommend stopping.
