About
If you love New Zealand wine and want to learn more about it, taste North Island varietals straight from the source at four of the top wineries near Napier.

Since numbers are limited to eight, it has the feel of a semi-private tour and can be customized based on the group’s interest.

Such fun!
Sep 2021
We booked this tour last minute on the night before and were thrilled that we could get a booking. Our family of 5 adults were from Hamilton and Wellington and had never been winetasting in Napier area before. What a treat this was, Ross was very engaging and informative with obvious insider knowledge of the industry so was very informative and educational. We enjoyed going to 4 different vineyards all with their own point of difference and our own dedicated sommelier. Thanks Ross for a wonderful afternoon, even if it rained a bit, we still had such a great time.

Ross has been an awesome companion (yes, he was not just our driver and tour guide that arvo). He definitely knows what he is doing and it shows his passion and heart are put on to it.

When I asked him about the history of one of the vineyards there (Marist), I was impressed about his knowledge of it. It made me even more curious since I found a link between that vineyard and the school I came from which was also started by the same Marist brothers.

Love the personal touch with the cheese platter and wine in a hidden gem in Hawkes bay.

If you're thinking of doing an activity while you are in Napier, definitely consider Ross and put it on your to do list.

Thanks for the awesome time, Ross! =)

Loved traveling with Ross, his knowledge is extensive and interesting. Enjoyed all the wineries we stopped at especially Mission Estate as Trevor there gave a thorough education on wine tasting, which was very helpful for these newbies.

This is a great way to taste the local wines, enjoy the scenery and have a relaxing time.
We had a wonderful afternoon guided by the friendly Ross 😊 who is very knowledgeable about Napier, the wineries and really everything we have asked about the region.
He went above and beyond to make our tour a lovely experience.
