I get buses generate more money than two people but to be ignored was very rude. We were looking for a specific wine but were left alone to just stand there not good service

The lovely woman that helped us with our tastings made our visit really enjoyable. I love wine but confess that I know nothing about it. She answered all my stupid questions without making me feel stupid & I left with a lot more knowledge & some gorgeous wine!

We did this as part of the wine tour which included another four wineries. This was the first one. We considered going back to sample the food as it all looked wonderful but ran out of time.

My husband and I came here on the weekend for lunch. Such welcoming and hospitable staff. We had lunch here with the accompanying wines for each meal and both of our meals were AMAZING. We both agreed it was the best food we had eating during our week long holiday and would recommend this to others without a doubt.

This is a beautiful winery with a good tour. They tell you a lot about the history of the area and of the wine industry in the region. The wines aren't bad either. We didn't eat there but apparently, they are famous for their lamb.

Church Road and Mission are the only wineries to provide tours but I think Church road is the only one to provide tours of its museum AND winery. $15 for the tour and that includes the wine tasting after. Our guide Denise was very knowledgeable and shared a great deal of information about the wine production process and Church Road... More

We were a group of 7 that paid for a wine muesem tour and tasting, which cost 15 dollars. The tour was 45 minutes all up, and it was incredibly interesting. The tasting was also great, we got to try a huge variety of wines and we learnt a lot. Tour guide was very friendly and helpful.

Gorgeous food and wine, we just had a wonderful experience. The staff were just lovely and the winery itself is very pretty. Recommend if you are coming to Napier to stop in for dinner or lunch here.
