Overview
If you love New Zealand wine and want to learn more about it, taste North Island varietals straight from the source at four of the top wineries near Napier. Join winemakers for a discussion of grape growing and wine production methods as you sip your way through a few hand-picked spots including Mission Estate, the oldest winery in New Zealand. Since numbers are limited to eight, it has the feel of a semi-private tour and can be customized based on the group’s interest.

Loved traveling with Ross, his knowledge is extensive and interesting. Enjoyed all the wineries we stopped at especially Mission Estate as Trevor there gave a thorough education on wine tasting, which was very helpful for these newbies.
