We came to visit early in the morning. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Beautiful grounds and buildings. We were unexpectedly informed of the area's history by a grounds keeper who even took our picture. You can tell that this old New Zealand winery produces good wine: it is one classy place!

“Beautiful estate, icy welcome..”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

We were most disappointed as we arrived there. Other personel whom we met there did not even greet us as we walked in. It is so untypical for Kiwis! It is beautiful estate though, with a nice garden and a restaurant. The lady at the wine tasting let us know we were neither welcome nor at the write place. After tasting two or three wines, none of our group had any wish to stay longer or to enjoy the restaurant. We would advice visiting smaller wineries with good wine and friendly hosts instead!

“Good Food and Good WIne”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Friendly staff arranged a table and agreed that during the wait we could go and taste some wine. Great wines! Lunch was a gastronomic affair and was wonderful.

“Mission Estate Winery it's a must!!”
Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

We are staying right at the gates in a cute bed and breakfast and strolled up the lovely tree line avenue to the mission house where we were greeted by friendly staff who showed us to a table, but the option for a quiet drink over looking the vineyard was offered too.
The menu is delightful with plenty of options on offer and the sort of menu that leave you torn on your choice, we skipped the entree and starter as we had had a late lunch but decided on a lovely main and could not hold back ordered a desert straight away.
to cut a long story short , this place is Devine the food is first class and you would find it hard to get better anywhere ...
The service and wine accompany the food and are of an equally suburb high standard... We highly recommend this place and look forward to hopefully sneaking back up there for lunch before we leave Napier.
