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

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
