Vince turned up right on time. My wife and I were picked up in a minibus, stopped a couple of times to pick up some more folks and off we went. Vince gave us a nice history of Napier and surroundings in avery entertaining manner. We dtopped st four vineyards and had a fabulous outing. He knew all the vintners and was very knowledgeable himself.

Vince is personable, articulate and just a lot of fun. Everyone in our group, some from the cruise ships, some on their own, and some part of other sightseeing tours around NZ, all agreed. Half a day at $60/person was a bargain.

We had a wonderful tour, hamish is a great guide very friendly, and with great local knowledge abut the area and the wines. We loved all bar the last vineyard (Craggy Range) on our tour and the view from Te Mata peak was stunning. Would recommend doing this tour, it would be perfect if the service at the last vineyard was better, but that is not the tour guides fault.

On New Year's Eve we enjoyed a wine tour with Vince Peroni, he of Vince's World of Wine, which operates in Hawke's Bay NZ. Vince's knowledge spans many years in the wine industry and the proof of this is seen at each vineyard visited. He is on excellent terms with the wine makes, and the owners, which make the tourist feel perfectly at home and welcome. He is a great character and an enjoyable companion. We learned a lot, as we were taken to many small and lesser-known wineries - all being most interesting and of high quality. We purchased plenty of first class wine to bring home to Auckland with us - chardonnay, syrah, gewurztraminer and even temperanillo (not commonly produced in NZ). Overall Vince's World of Wine comes highly recommended - in fact it is a 'must do' when visiting the Bay.

What a great guy. I was a bit snarky because we had to wait a bit to be picked up. I felt guilty within 5 minutes because Vince is so friendly and easy going. Sorry Vince! Anyway, we like our wine and visit Margaret River a few times a year. We were looking forward to touring Hawkes Bay, but only had one afternoon. Fortunately we booked this tour because Vince knows his wines and we visited boutique wineries for the most part (and the mission because one of the guests insisted-gorgeous building, ok wine!) had a wonderful time and will do it again if we return to Napier! Thank you again Vince!

Going on a wine tour with Vince is an unforgettable experience. From the moment you meet you are made welcome and he encourages great group rapport from complete strangers. His knowledge of local wineries is immense and he is flexible to accommodate preferences from his party. This was a most entertaining, and informative tour, where his service includes pick-up from your hotel and return. Highly-recommended!
