Vince was a great host and great laugh. He took us to 4 wineries. When looking at all he brochures we chose Vince because of the Boutique Wineries on offer. Vince was also very informative about the surrounding areas and he told us about the Napier Brewing Co Pub across the road from the Holiday Park. Excellent Day.

Could not have asked for a better host. We visited four wines and never felt rushed and had time to appreciate the wine and our beautiful surroundings. 10 out of 10 tour.

Lyn took us for a wonderful 4 hour tour of 4 wineries. We were relative novices to the world of wine making and grape varieties (although we do like a drop or two). She was able to tailor her tour to our level of knowledge and we had a great tour. At the wineries themselves, the winery staff were also... More

I absolutely loved this tour. Vince is an excellent host and me and my husband Phil immediately felt at ease in his company. This tour was fun, and Vince knew so much about wine. What really made it special was his knowledge of the local area and the stories he told about the history of Napier. Vince is such a... More

We went on the wine tour today, with Vince as our guide. It was a very convivial afternoon, as Vince is very friendly and created a very warm atmosphere between the 6 of us on the tour. Vince is very knowledgeable and had no problem answering everyone's questions. He has been running the tour for 25 years and knew the... More

There are a lot of options for wine tours so we did our homework and it paid off😊We visited some of the more boutique vineyards rather than the big guys and were not disappointed. We were made to feel very welcome and got the special treatment from the vineyards. Our host was Lin who owns the business with Vince. Lin... More

When travelling we often take a local wine tour and whilst in Napier we thought why not? So we called Vince had an interesting conversation about Welsh and New Zealand rugby and booked the tour on the spot. If you want to go to the large commercial wineries go elsewhere.If you want the smaller boutique wineries call Vince. We visited... More

Excellent five star wine tour aimed at both the connoisseur and uninitiated. Vince's selection and knowledge of the local wineries allowed him to tailor the tour to perfection. The staff at all the wineries were extremely pleasant and very willing to expand your knowledge of the wines and their production. We tasted a minimum of 6 wines at 4 vineyards... More
