Great tour of 3 boutique wineries in Hawkes Bay. We were meant to visit 4 but spent so long enjoying the wine, food and stories of Bob Armstrong at Hawkes Ridge Winery that we run out of time. We still managed to taste a wide selection of wines and see how different wineries work. A great tour if you are... More

Great tour of four boutique wineries in the Hawkes Bay area, standout winery of the day was Moana Park. Vince is really friendly and knowledgeable. His enthusiasm for wine and the area makes for a great day out. Would definitely recommend this tour.

If you want a friendly informative afternoon and enjoy wine this is the tour for you. We were a very mixed bunch but Vince made us all feel comfortable as he transported us to small boutique vine yards to taste some wonderful wines. Would thoroughly recommend this excursion .

Enjoyable tour,but don't expect to be tasting vintage wines. Also be prepared to feel more than a little pressure to buy. Vince is an extremely engaging and likeable host,we had a great time,but peasant that I am,I didn't feel I'd tasted any great wines that I couldn't get in my local Tescos.

We've been out with Vince nine times so far! We have lived in Hawkes Bay for 18 months, so that's not quite as bad as it sounds. Vince and Lyn are professional, efficient and just lovely. Whenever we have guests staying, we ask Vince to drive them through beautiful scenery and get them squiffy. Vince knows everyone. He has a... More

Call Vince if you want to enjoy the nicest tastings! We really had a great time with Vince. He's very well informed on the wines and knows most of the owners personally which really shows during the tastings. Don't go to the big, commercial estates and let Vince guide the way. He's a great guy with many stories to tell... More

Vince gave up his Sunday to take out just the 2 of us. He is very knowledgeable and knows all the cellar door staff so well we got A1 treatment. Stop for a platter at ash ridge. Vince is 'the man' for Napier wine tours

If you are wondering which wine tour to do, this is the one. Vince is very friendly and went the extra mile to ensure we had the best afternoon. He has a lot of knowledge not just on wine and he's happy to share all of it. Perfect afternoon. Amy & Timothée
