I am from California and this was the best wine tasting experience in my 50 years. The wines are off the chart. The mission is so beautiful and the views breath taking. I highly recommend eating lunch or dinner here. The food was incredible. The location and staff are 5 star. DO NOT MISS THIS WINERY ON YOUR TRAVELS TO... More

We saw this vineyard as a part of a “Hooters” tour. It is quite spectacular both inside and out. There is quite a history to it and well worth the drive out of Napier for Lunch. They also have lovely wines of course.

The wines at mission are amaaaaazing and we especially loved talking to Yvonne. She was friendly, welcoming and very knowledgeable on the different wines. We felt very comfortable in her company. We then had wines and a platter in the sun... A must on a good day in the bay!

We cycled to the winery on a sunny pretty day. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Great recommendations on wine and loved the free glass. Also olives were so tasty the perfect day. Really felt like a south of france moment. Beautiful buildings too.

Spur of the moment stopped that was so worthwhile. The grounds are beautiful and the house is fun to explore. It does have a certain 'vibe.' I didn't get to do a lot of tasting as they only had a small amount of wines available and the one I really was interested in was not available for tasting. I enjoyed... More

This was the first winery we visited and it didn't disappoint. Beautiful selection of Savs and Riesling (not like the Riesling we get in the states). Nice souvenir glasses to take home. Sommeliers were very knowledgable and accommodating. A great stop to make.

This winery was well worth visiting. Only a 15 minute drive from the Napier city, the grounds and vineyards are well maintained. There is a modest $5 charge for tastings which is quickly made up for with a souvenir wine glass and around 8 great wines.
