“A lot of history for a winery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

Went to Mission, as part of a wine tour, beautiful building, a great history about the earthquake and burning of the building, it's a pity the wine was not that great and I'm a wine expert, by travel every wine country in the world, they really try...

“Long established”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

The Mission estate has a long history in the bay but it has really come of age. Stunning location with a wonderful restaurant on the front lawn. The wine is also excellent. Very popular institution and deserves high praise for the work that goes into it. Highly recommend a visit.

“Professional slick and enjoyable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

Whilst visiting some of the vineyards in Hawkes Bay we dropped into Mission. The place is impressive, very grand approach and property. However, we had quite a frosty reception by meet and greeter.....perhaps she was having a bad day! Despite this initial hiccup we enjoyed our time here, and stayed for superb lunch. The waiting staff although young were excellent in attention, detail to our requirements and service was good. Left fully satisfied in both body and soul!

“Excellent Lunch with lovely views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

We had lunch here, on the recommendation of a friend from Wellington who has had lunch here many times before. We were not disappointed.

The views over the vineyards are lovely, the food was great, and the service was impeccable.

You definitely have to book ahead I think to secure a table, rather than just turning up and hoping for a space.
