My wife and I had the most enjoyable time tasting wines in Napier. Our driver was exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable. The conversation was enjoyable and his company and advice about wines and the town were excellent. Absolutely stunning experience.

We enjoy drinking wine but don't know much about it. We took the boutique winery tour as it seemed we would learn about different wines and food matching. We did go in the winter so we couldn't visit the vineyard. Lynn was very informative and easy to talk to - she drove us to four different wineries to sample different... More

What a great wine tasting tour. Fantastic wineries with amazing range of wines and fascinating talks on every wine we tasted. Small producers with a wealth of knowledge- we came away having had lots of wine to taste and a much better understanding of our favourite drink. Vince was a mine of knowledge on NZ and Napier area. A fantastic... More

We were referred to Vince by a work colleague. His knowledge was first rate, he was engaging and ensured that our group of four had a very memorable afternoon. The cost was very fair when you factor the time spent and the access to many tastings. We would strongly recommend Vince to anyone considering a wine tasting!

There was just my husband and I on the tour with Lyn. It was like being shown around by an old friend. We never felt rushed and it was a great safe way to get to see the local area and experience some of the delicious wines.

Vince is a legend. Myself, my husband and daughter and a lovely couple were treated to marvellous stories and real knowledge of the wine industry. We visited 4 wineries and loved every moment of the tour on 9th April. Highly recommended. We will be back!

Vince gave us one of the best wine tours we have ever been on. We had a great group of people and had an overall truly enjoyable wine experience. Vince took us around to 4 of the more boutique wineries in the area and we ended up enjoying each and every one. It was nice to be able to experience... More

I'm not joking. It was just the two of us on the afternoon tour and it was as if we hired Vince as our personal driver and guide (even though we paid the normal price). Vince took us to wineries we wouldn't have normally considered and boy did he pick well. I enjoyed every single wine through the afternoon, and... More

We first toured with Vince 21 years ago and this was our third trip with him - celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. Vince personally escorted just us two on a perfect sunny day. Vince, like Wine, improves with age and we were treated to some delicious tastings and his in depth knowledge of the Hawke's Bay wine industry. He sure... More

Tour visited smaller but quality wineries, a pleasant change from the well-known biggies. Vince did a great job, providing excellent information, and making the trip a very enjoyable event. Would definitely recommend. Viv and Lyn Trounson Dargaville NZ.
