“Nice wine!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

We went there for lunch and the food was awesome. We also did the wine tasting....but it appears all their wine came from the Malborough region! But hey the pinot gris was still pretty amazing. The location is just stunning and so is the building.

Only down thing was that it appeared the wine tour did not occur.

“Winery with history.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

My favorite vineyard to visit in NZ. You must have a look around at the pictures on the wall of the history. Lovely wine, good friendly service.

“Wonderful winery to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

Do try and time your visit for the morning or afternoon free historical tour - telling the story of Mission Estate Winery and the ups and downs of the Marist Brothers as they tried to make a success of their venture in their new land. Absolutely fascinating.

“Stunning views and amazing wine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

We were blown away by the stunning views Mission Estate has to offer. We could have stayed here all day, basking in the sunshine whilst eating and sipping wine. The lady at the cellar door was fabulous and loads of fun. This is one of the best cellar doors in NZ.

“Great visit, great wine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

This building was a Monastery and is just beautiful. The selection of wine available for tasting is first class and the knowledgeable staff make it a lovely visit. I didn't eat in the restaurant but a couple from Canada we got chatting to said the food was just amazing
